Glock allowed to race by European GP stewards, but awaits medical clearance

Timo Glock, MarussiaTimo Glock will be allowed to start the European Grand Prix if he is passed fit by Formula 1 medical delegate on Sunday morning, despite not taking part in qualifying.

The Marussia driver has suffered from a stomach bug over the Valencia weekend but, after appearing to be on the road to recovery, he suffered relapse on Saturday that forced him to abandon efforts to take part in Q1.

Although his absence meant that Glock was unable to set a time within the mandatory 107 per cent of pole position, the stewards will allow him to start because he set an acceptable time during free practice, and has also shown himself to be quick enough over the season so far.

The stewards made it clear however that "the permission is subject to the driver being cleared to race by the FIA Medical Delegate."
