Glock looks forward to his home Grand Prix
Views on the classic Nordschleife circuit
With the German Grand Prix currently alternating between the Nurburgring and Hockenheim, a number of drivers are racing at the former circuit for the first time in Formula One machinery this weekend. Timo Glock is one such driver…


“I have a lot of good memories but the best is probably from GP2 in 2007,” the Toyota racer recalled. “The year before I was not in a competitive car and I struggled in the midfield, which is basically my only bad memory of the track. But when GP2 went back there in 2007 I was with iSport so it was a different story. I qualified on pole by more than half a second and won the feature race, then finished fifth in the sprint race. That was a really good weekend for my championship and it's the last time I raced at the Nurburgring so I hope I can keep up the good record.”

This weekend’s Grand Prix is of course the home race for no less than five drivers, some 25 percent of the field.

“Nowadays it is a great feeling to race at the Nurburgring because I am in my own country, with lots of my fans in the grandstands and some family and friends around as well,” Glock continued. “It's also one of (Cologne-based) Toyota's home races so that makes it special for the team too.”

After a strong start to the season in which Glock scored 12 of his 13 points in the first four races, the last four have been something of a disappointment for Glock, but he insists he is not feeling the pressure despite it being home soil.

“I don't feel any extra pressure at my home race; everything is positive,” Glock stated.

“From track to track my motivation doesn't really change; I always give my all and do my very best to get a strong result for the team. Sure, it might be a bit more enjoyable to succeed in my home race but it doesn't make any difference to my lap time - or to the number of points given out at the end. Every race is important so if you're not giving 100 percent you are not doing your job properly.”

The ‘new’ Nurburgring is situated on the doorstep of the old Nordschleife circuit, last used for Grand Prix competition in 1976. Many Formula One drivers look at the old circuit with fascination, especially given the modern day standards of a Formula One facility.

“It is a massively impressive track and it's really quite incredible to think they used to race Formula One cars around there,” Glock said. “I first drove it around eight years ago and I was completely taken aback by the place; I had never seen a race track which is 22km long! Even in a road car you feel the speed and the excitement so it must have been awesome in a Formula One car.

“I used to play on some video games quite a bit and drive the Nordschleife, but I don't have time for that now!”
