F1 test role for Glock still open

Although signed up to charge for the GP2 title in 2007, Timo Glock could also be a test driver for BMW-Sauber next year, German reports said on Friday.

The 24-year-old is scheduled to test twice for the formula one team in November and December, and the news agency Sport-Informations-Dienst insisted that an official role for Glock alongside ‘Friday’ driver Sebastian Vettel is still open.

‘Sid’ added that because Vettel will race in the ‘World Series by Renault’ in parallel to his grand prix weekends role, he may often be unavailable for certain mid-week tests.

Glock, having tested and raced for Jordan in 2004, and subsequently in Champ Cars, is also more experienced than the teenage rookie Vettel.

The German’s manager, Hans-Bernd Kamps, is understood to have built into Glock’s iSport GP2 contract the possibility that he conduct a role for a F1 team.
