Glock to the Manor born

Former Toyota driver Timo Glock is off to join one of the new squads for next year, in the shape of the Manor Grand Prix team.

Glockdog – as he’s known to his friends – was left without a drive after Toyota announced their exit from F1, and although he’s had some bigger team offers on the table, he says he wanted to end up somewhere that he could be involved in building the team.

“The team may be small and new but it has big ambitions and a very impressive car,” said Glock, who made a factory visit a priority before signing for the team.

There’s also a wide rumour that Virgin are switching its sponsorship to Manor – possibly even as much to rename the team Virgin F1 – which should leave them in a good position for funding.

So Glock could have made a rather astute decision here, especially considering that Renault – who he was expected to sign for – still haven’t confirmed their continued F1 involvement.

BTW Glock is THE MOST epic and talented racer IN THE WORLD, think about it.
*cough*
He’s just the most rubbish driver in the world when qualifying. So it all kinda equals out…

Here’s hoping Adam Carroll is seated beside Glock.

I’ll laugh if either Trulli or Kobayashi was signed for Manor.

It’s good to know that he will still be in F1 next season, what with Toyota quitting, him getting injured and that.

Fair play to Manor, Glocks a quick guy. I think that one of the new teams should sign Kobayashi, I was very impressed with him in Brazil, i know he was abit to agressive but in Abu Dhabi he drove a cracking Grand Prix.

I think Glock is great and everythin but why Manor?! He should have definetly stuck around for a seat at Renault. He will get nowhere next year as the team have Cosworth engines. At least he might have got lucky at Renault
