Glock, Red Bull Punished - not Hurt
Timo Glock was lining up for his fast lap at his home grand prix in Germany but things didn’t go quite as he had planned. Towards the end of Q1, Fernando Alonso looked on course to set the fastest lap of the session when he saw the Toyota of Glock blocking him off at the final corner of the lap. >
Glock was punished by being bumped down to last spot on the grid. However, the fall wasn’t too long as despite the last corner theatrics, the German only managed 19th spot on the grid. “That was definitely a disappointing result and it is not what I expected from my home grand prix”, said Glock.
At another part of the track, not so far from the Glock incident, the stewards decided to pull up Red Bull Racing for causing a “potentially dangerous situation” after the team let their driver, Kazuki Nakajima, out into the path of an oncoming Sebastian Vettel. The fine was small, but the reprimand may have been a bit embarrassing.
