Timo Glock will not be participating in the qualifying session Saturday afternoon, Marussia said.
The German Marussia racer has reportedly been suffering from a stomach ache all weekend, and does not feel well enough to take part in the qualifying session, which begins shortly.
It is also uncertain if he will compete in the race at all.
A statement from Marussia reads:
‘Marussia F1 Team driver Timo Glock will not take part in this afternoon’s Qualifying session for tomorrow’s European Grand Prix for health reasons.
Timo has been fighting a stomach bug since Thursday. He felt well enough to take part in yesterday’s Free Practice sessions and had seemed to be improving. This morning, after Free Practice 3, he started to feel unwell again. It is clear that at this time, he is not sufficiently well to take part in a demanding Qualifying session and needs to recuperate further.
Timo and the Team will now seek further medical guidance this afternoon. Until such time as this guidance has been received, no decisions will be reached regarding tomorrow’s race. A further statement will be issued on Sunday morning.’
