Glock evaluates other options

Timo Glock reveals that he is looking at options outside Virgin Racing for 2011
Timo Glock has revealed that he is evaluating his options for the 2011 F1 season and could move away from Virgin Racing after a single year.

The former Toyota driver joined the Manor-run team to spearhead its F1 campaign having previously been linked to Renault, who instead went for GP2 graduate Vitaly Petrov to partner Robert Kubica.

Despite his strong result in Hungary, doubts persist over whether or not Petrov will retain his seat for 2011 and Glock said he was keeping his options open to see what opportunities may appear for next year.

“I'm keeping my eyes open,” he told ITV-F1. “We'll see. If there is an opportunity at Renault, I don't know at the moment. I'm not that close talking to them.

“I have a longer contract at Virgin, but if things are not going as they should, what I said from the beginning on is I will have a look around and I'll keep my eyes open.”

Glock secured 'pole' amongst the new teams in Hungary last time out, although he finished the race behind both Heikki Kovalainen and Jarno Trulli.

However, the German said he was pleased with the progress made by the Virgin team and was hopeful of a strong result when the season resumes at Spa.

“I couldn't really stay in front of the Lotuses, which I expected a little bit,” he said. “But we made some progress, and we're closer to them. I think we have a good package for Spa, so we'll see where we are.”
