Glock confirmed at Manor for 2010

It has been confirmed that new Formula One team will have ex-Toyota driver Timo Glock driving for them next season.

“I have several options for 2010, some of them with more established teams,” Glock explained, alluding to the fact that rumours also linked him with a switch to Renault for 2010.

“Every driver has the same overall objective – to win the world championship one day – but the way I want to succeed is to be part of the process of building a team and to play a key role in developing the car. This is why the opportunity with Manor Grand Prix is so exciting for me.

“I have spent a lot of time with [technical director] Nick Wirth, [team principal] John Booth and other members of the team and what I liked most is that this a real racing team run by true racers.

“The team may be small and new but it has big ambitions and a very impressive car and development programme. I am confident that I can play a big role in terms of my technical input and that’s a fantastic opportunity for me. I can’t wait to start testing the new car early next year.”
