Through mutual consent, Timo Glock and the Marussia F1 Team are parting ways with immediate effect. The end of a truly great affair.
With the 30 year old German having raced with Marussia since its inception in 2009, Timo Glock has played a significant role in the up-and-coming growth of the team. To lose such an experienced member is a great loss, but due to unforeseeable reasons the team must take steps to secure its long-term future in an industry that presents more challenging economic conditions by the day.
John Booth, Team Principal of the Marussia F1 Team, commented, “Timo has made a very significant contribution to our Team over the past three seasons, helping us to develop our package to the point where, for a large proportion of the 2012 season, we were holding 10th place in the Constructors’ Championship. Timo is a fantastic driver and he has been a very popular member of the Team.
“Our Team was founded on the principle of benefiting from proven experience whilst also providing opportunities for young emerging talent to progress to the pinnacle of motorsport. We would like to
thank Timo for working with us to reach this decision, especially as he had a valid contract, and also for the contribution he has made to our Team. We wish him all the best for his future and I would like to congratulate the next team acquiring the services of such a competitive, professional and experienced racer.”
