Spiel about Glock

Timo Glock used to be a Jordan Formula 1 driver, and a pretty good one based on a limited number of appearances. Then he went off to America and impressed in his first season in Champ Car with Rocketsports. Glock came back to Europe over the winter to do a test in GP2 with the ART team but as the operation will be running Alexandre Premat and Lewis Hamilton in 2006, Glock's choices are somewhat limited if he wnats to make a big impression and it looks more likely that he will return to the United States in an effort to get himself back on the F1 radar screens. To do that he needs to win and so it is believed that Glock is looking at trying to do deals with the top teams, notbaly Newman Haas Racing which is happy to run a third car if funding can be found. We believe that several drivers are in the hunt for such a deal, including Cristiano da Matta but Glock's hefty support from DHL may help him sign up alongside Sebastien Bourdais and Bruno Junqueira.
