Glock Says He's Medically OK to Contest in Malaysia

Timo Glock insisted that the recently-sustained operation to remove his appendix will not affect his preparation for the Malaysian Grand Prix next weekend. The German racer had his surgery just before the last test of the off-season, in Barcelona, and some concerns were raised over his ability to tackle the race at Sepang fully recovered.

Even though a Grand Prix has passed since then, during which the German had no problems doing all practice sessions, qualifying and race without feeling any discomfort, it is believed that the humidity present at Sepang International Circuit during this time of year might have some unwanted effects over his operation.

It's all okay.” insisted however Glock. “I just feel I couldn't do a proper workout in the last three weeks. But it's nothing critical. My muscles just realise that they have to wake up again! It's not so bad that I would go to Malaysia and would be worried about my fitness. The lower muscles are just a bit... unused, and that's it. Malaysia shouldn't be a problem.”

In fact, Glock admitted he's more concerned about the poor performance showed by his MVR-02 in the past few weeks rather than his physical state for the Malaysian race Having been so close to not making the grid in Australia, the German recently urged his team to make something happen in order to boost development on the 2011-spec single-seater.

The team has to think about certain things and make changes to get us closer. We cannot continue like this. It's not possible,” said Glock yesterday.
