Glock Admits Toyota Stay Unlikely

German driver Timo Glock seems to have used the extra weeks of rest to pursue a new path in Formula One. After being announced by Toyota that he may look for a new commitment for the upcoming season, Glock did just that and started taking several options under consideration for continuing his F1 career.

Following his accident in the Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka – which left him sidelined for the remainder of the season – Glock tested the drivers market and seems to have received two offers for a 2010 deal with either Renault or newly entrants Manor F1.

There are a lot of rumours going on at the moment, and we have a couple of good possibilities. And there could be maybe a surprise in the next one or two weeks, where nobody has been thinking in that direction. We will see... The possibilities are there and we just have to sort it out now,” Glock was quoted as saying to reporters in Abu Dhabi, according to British magazine Autosport.

I think you have to look in every direction because nobody knows what is going on next year. That makes it interesting and you can make the right decision, or you can make the wrong decision. It doesn't matter where you go, you never know what is going on next year,” added the German driver.

However, as Toyota failed to ink a new deal with either Robert Kubica or Kimi Raikkonen, the Japanese manufacturer is thinking more serious on maintaining Jarno Trulli and Timo Glock in their lineup for another season. While both put on the exit board by Toyota, they have now received extension offers from the Cologne officials to continue their Toyota adventure.

While Trulli seems unlikely to stay – given his outspoken conflict with team president John Howett and his projected offer by Lotus F1 Team – Glock also admitted there are some low chances of him remaining at Cologne for an extra year.

It could be, but the chance is a bit lower I would say,” added Glock.
