Timo Glock‘s Marussia team have announced that the German will miss today’s European Grand Prix through illness.
Glock also missed qualifying yesterday, but was given special dispensation to race today by the stewards.
The team will run just one car in Valencia today, piloted by French rookie Charles Pic.
“Further to the medical problem which prevented Timo Glock from participating in yesterday's qualifying session for the European Grand Prix in Valencia, the Marussia F1 Team can confirm that Timo is unable to compete in today's race,” said the statement released by the team this morning.
“Timo received medical guidance yesterday afternoon and his symptoms suggest that he is suffering from an intestinal infection. He has been advised that it would be unwise for him to race given the severity of the complaint and that he should focus instead on recuperating.
“Timo spent the evening resting at his hotel in Valencia and is in good spirits. He will return home later today.”
