Glock to sit out Abu Dhabi Grand Prix // Toyota confirm Kamui Kobayashi for the final race of 2009

Published by Christine

Toyota have confirmed that Glock will not be returning to drive for them in Abu Dhabi. A statement on the Toyota website initially read:

Due to differing medical opinions regarding Timo's fitness to race, the team is not prepared to take any risks regarding his health.

Now it simply holds a quote from John Howett:

We feel genuinely sorry for Timo that his season, which has included two impressive podium finishes, is ending in this way. Having discussed the medical advice with Timo and his management, the team has decided to take no risk and to put Kamui in the car. Kamui performed well in Brazil in difficult circumstances so we are happy to ask him to once again deputise.
