Timo Glock: Marussia to struggle with rookies

Published

on

Timo Glock says that his ex team Marussia will struggle this season with rookie drivers’ line-up, especially in testing.

The German speedy, who formerly drove for the Jordan, Toyota, Virgin Racing and Marussia F1 teams, he raced for the Marussia from 2010-12.

This season he forced out from the drivers’ line-up, following the team’s economic condition required it to sign a second pay-driver and Max Chilton secured this position. And also this season Timo switched to the DTM, signing for BMW.

“It’s definitely not going to be easy for them, especially in testing, where you need to be able to make the right decisions in pinpointing the weaknesses of the car,” Glock told Autosport.

“That’s something that only comes from experience. There’s a lot of pressure on Luiz and Max to get up to speed with the car quickly. That’s the critical part; knowing that perhaps the simulation you have brought to a track isn’t quite accurate and being able to make a forward step from there.”

“Generally they just need to find a way of getting more financial support so that they can move forwards and develop, the bigger teams won’t stop developing and that’s what makes it so hard for the smaller teams to catch up. The bigger teams bring updates to every race while the smaller teams have updates maybe every five or six races. Glock said.

“At least they’ve definitely moved forward with the car. It’s quicker this year. It’s all about developing, about how they get on with KERS.”
