Glock hits out at axe reports

Timo Glock has hit out at suggestions he is definitely on his way out of the Toyota F1 team at the end of the season after claiming that reports he has effectively been fired by the team are the 'funniest he has ever read'.

With Toyota yet to fully commit to next season, Toyota has yet to confirm either of its drivers for 2010, with reports during the Singapore Grand Prix weekend stating that the team's option on Glock for next season hasn't been taken up.

While that leaves Glock open to evaluate other options, he insisted that he could still remain with Toyota for next season and said that suggestions that he was definitely on his way out were 'bulls**t'.

“I think the stories after the race on Sunday were the funniest I've ever read on the Internet,” he said. “[For people to say I was] fired on Saturday after qualifying is just b***t and it's not correct.

“The point is that we already had a couple of discussions a couple of weeks ago and we are open with Toyota, Toyota is open to me. We have the possibility to look around and that's it really. There is nothing new, there were no discussions over the weekend about any contract situation or whatever. That's the only thing that I can say.

“There are rumours going around and I think maybe for some it was a bit boring on Saturday and they had to find a story for Sunday or after the race on Sunday.”

I think what the issue is that Toyota isn't sure it will be in F1 next year, so they have been honest to the drivers, saying look around cause we might not be here next year. If Toyota is still on the grid next year, I expect Glock to be there as well, eventhough his performances have not always been well especially in quali. Trulli is another story, he looks utterly demotivated lately. He must have finally realized Toyota ain't going to give him his last chance at a WC. I think he's looking for the exit door really. It must be tough to stay motivated if you get get close to what you want to achieve all the time (fi Bahrein, Spa) but just can't seem to make it for several years.
