Well, indeed. Good move for BMW. But I reckon that it's a good move for Timo Glock as well. It is nice to be among F1 drivers, but I am sure he will find it more entertaining to have competitive package at his disposal.

Prestige is one thing, but there is something more important - to enjoy what you are doing. If you do, then there will always be the fire of passion burning inside you.

hopefully this trend continues to grow. there's so much more to racing than F1 which is by no means the same it used to be. as a racing driver you dream of competing against the best and challenge them.

Agree with other comments - there is so much more to Motorsport than just F1. He's now in a proper front running car, will be getting paid, and enjoying himself. I don't see the fun in being a back marker in F1, especially when you are a good driver, as Timo is.

f1 is a joke. i dont like stage manged entertainment dressed up as sport. thats why bmw left. they dont need it to prove what good cars they make. if you look at mercedes i think it has weekened there image. they took a championship team to the middle of the pack. nobody will give them credit for that win last year. it was agreed it was there turn. where as bmw took a team from near the back to fighting with the top two

Wow, it's interesting that everybody is siding with Glock. I actually am not. I still wonder what is so appealing about him and Kovalainen that everybody is rooting for them?

Considering that Glock was paired with Digrassi and Dambrosio and actually lost to each of them in the end of season standings during 2010 and 2011, I say good riddance to him.

If you're the lead driver you can't claim the team isn't any good if rookie pay drivers are doing a better job than you.

Let's not forget that in 2009, in just 2 races with Toyota, Kobayashi (a rookie then) showed more flair and audacity than Timo Glock had shown all season, in a car that was potentially capable of winning.
