During the second practice session in Shanghai this morning, Timo Glock´s nosecone on his Marussia racer flew off, apparently for no reason. The team is searching for answers to how this could happen.
Halfway through the second session, Glock was suddenly seen going off, with a missing nose cone. Footage didn´t reveal much, other than that the front of the car seemed to simply fall off. Glock was lucky not to crash into the barriers.
“I’m fine,” said Glock, who climbed from the car, grabbing his left hand, which seemed injured in some way. “I had a bit of a problem at the first moment with my left hand – it was just the impact, but it’s fine.”
Timo Glock was, as the rest if us, in the dark as to what exactly happened.
“I don’t know, we have to see the footage, I have no idea. I came down the straight and went straight on. I don’t know when (the front wing) came off, because I just saw it off when I jumped out of the car.”
