F1 ‘has become boring’ – Timo Glock

F1 'has become boring' - Glock
Former F1 driver Timo Glock has denounced the pinnacle of motor sport as “boring”.

The 33-year-old German drove for Toyota until 2009, when the Japanese giant suddenly pulled out.

He raced on with Marussia until 2012, but was ultimately a victim of the ever-growing ‘pay driver’ trend.

Glock now races for BMW in the premier German touring car series DTM — a category he says compares favourably with formula one.

“DTM puts out a positive message and keeps the costs down,” he told the German daily Bild.

In F1, on the other hand, “The teams with the most money are in front, the others just have to see where they are”.

Not only that, “The races in formula one have become quite boring,” said Glock, “which is not like with us (in DTM).

“With the exception of Sebastian Vettel’s Ferrari, nobody is able to keep up with those at the front,” he added, referring to reigning champions Mercedes. (GMM)
