BMW yet to confirm Glock move to DTM

22 January, 2013

Timo Glock has no problems with motivationBMW has refused to comment on media speculation that Timo Glock could continue his career in a BMW racing seat in the German touring car series DTM.

Marussia announced on Monday that, despite the 30-year-old having a “valid contract” for 2013 (and apparently also 2014) it has agreed to part ways with German Glock to make room for a pay driver.

“Although it is not the path I expected to be taking, I am in fact very excited about what the future holds in terms of my own career and I hope to comment on that very soon,” the statement quoted Glock as saying.

An exchange on Twitter between Glock and BMW-contracted driver Dirk Muller indicated that a possible DTM move was indeed on the cards.

“We confirm nothing, we deny nothing – we don’t comment at all,” a spokesman for the German marque, Jorg Kottmeier, told SID news agency.

Germany’s Sport Bild, however, reported that Glock is lined up to test BMW’s M3 DTM car at Valencia on Wednesday and Thursday.

Glock was an F1 test driver for BMW in 2007.

He is quoted: “I am very excited to test the (DTM) car, and also to meet up at Valencia with some familiar faces from my past at BMW.”

Glock’s BMW move is reportedly bad news for Jaime Alguersuari, with Spanish radio Radioestadio claiming that the former Toro Rosso driver was a shoe-in for the DTM seat until Glock’s Marussia split.

As for who will replace him at Marussia, international reports have mentioned Brazilians Luiz Razia and Bruno Senna as possible candidates.

Russian Vitaly Petrov appears to be a natural contender in theory, but his manager Oksana Kosachenko said her only negotiations are with Caterham.

“It depends on the decisions of the directors of Caterham,” Kosachenko told Russia’s f1news.ru when asked about Petrov’s future. “We are not in negotiations with Marussia.” (GMM)
