Marussia confirms Timo Glock's departure

Timo GlockMarussia has confirmed German driver Timo Glock is leaving the team ahead of the start of the 2013 Formula 1 season.

Marussia said they had agreed to part company by mutual consent.

Glock had joined the team when it made its F1 debut at the start of the 2010 season, and he had extended his contract until the end of 2014.

Red Bull     Sebastian Vettel  Mark Webber
Ferrari      Fernando Alonso   Felipe Massa

Lotus        Kimi Raikkonen    Romain Grosjean
