Time for Glock

Giorgio Pantano has been unable to sort out the contractual problems which meant he was unable to run in Canada yesterday and so the team has drafted in reserve driver Timo Glock for what will be his first Grand Prix.

Glock is the first driver to graduate from Deutsche Post's Speed Academy development programme.

"I'm excited and a bit nervous to be taking part in this Grand Prix. Obviously I was not expecting to race in F1 this soon and the circumstances are not very nice for my team mate Giorgio but i will give full effort and I hope I can do a good job for the team."

Jordan intends for Pantano to return to acion in Indianapolis next week if he can sort out the problems.
