Glock signs for Manor

Timo Glock has signed a two-year deal Manor GP. It is expected that he will be partnered by new boy Lucas di Grassi, a former Renault test driver.

It is also expected that the team will soon be unveiled as Virgin Grand Prix, rather than Manor.

The cars are being built for the team by Wirth Research in Bicester and are unusual in that they will have no wind tunnel testing as technical director Nick Wirth believes that computational fluid dynamics is now good enough to make the wind tunnel obsolete.
