Zandvoort DTM: Timo Glock sent to back of the grid for race two

BMW driver Timo Glock will start the Sunday DTM race at Zandvoort from last place, after incurring a penalty during qualifying run-in with Edoardo Mortara

Zandvoort DTM: Timo Glock sent to back of the grid for race two

Glock, the winner of the first race at Zandvoort, felt he was baulked by Mercedes driver Mortara during his second run in qualifying when he came up behind the Italian at the fast Scheivlak right-hander while on a flying lap.

Mortara moved to the outside on corner entry, allowing Glock through, but the ex-Formula 1 driver backed out of his lap and slowed, backing up the Italian.

In a radio message broadcast, Glock twice labelled Mortara as a "fucking idiot" before they carried on.

Glock had been due to start the Sunday race in fifth, alongside points leader Rene Rast on row three, but has instead been sent to the back of the grid for "severely hindering" Mortara, according to a stewards bulletin.

The BMW driver has also been fined 3,000 Euros for "unsportsmanlike behaviour" in the pitlane after the session.

Glock is also the lead BMW in the DTM standings in fourth after his victory on Saturday and is currently 16 points behind Rast.

Mortara will be starting a row ahead of Glock in 16th, and will have to serve a five-second time penalty in the race for his role in the incident.

He had earlier picked up a five-place grid penalty for impeding Audi's Jamie Green.
