Glock confident he can become an F1 race winner

Timo Glock says it is still possible for him to become a Formula 1 World Champion one day as he looks set to stick with Virgin F1 for the time being.
Timo Glock says he is almost certain to remain with Virgin F1 in 2011 as he looks to get his world title dreams back on track.

Though it was considered the second quickest of the three newcomers in 2010, behind Lotus but ahead of HRT, it was Virgin that actually finished the season at the bottom of the constructors' standings, while Glock's single best finish of 14th left him last on the full-time drivers' list too.

Nonetheless, the German remains well regarded by the British-based team, which recently announced a deal to sell a large share of its business to Russian manufacturer Marussia, and is likely to return in 2011.

Indeed, with a potential deal to switch to Renault in place of Vitaly Petrov seemingly falling by the wayside, Glock told Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung that he is 99.9 per cent certain of staying put next season.

With Virgin saving his F1 career following the sudden withdrawal of Toyota – with whom he managed three podiums -, Glock is sure he can still forge a good career in F1 with race wins and maybe even a world title.

“If you have the opportunity to go to Red Bull or McLaren, then you'd have to go for it. From a sporting perspective you are open to new possibilities. It is definitely still my goal to go for the World Championship.”
