The announcement season continues today. Manor have signed up Timo Glock for next season. Glock was left without a drive following Toyota’s pull out from F1. There were rumours connecting him with Renault drive but at the end he will be joining the newcomers Manor GP.
“It might seem like a brave step. But there are many good reasons to join this team. For me as a driver, for example, it was important that I was assured I would be involved in the development of the team and the car.”
“With a year left on the Toyota contract, we originally had other plans and were aiming to really compete for the world championship with the team. Now, for obvious reasons, that is not going to happen. Ahead of me now is a great challenge. And I’m really looking forward to it!” – Timo Glock
