Toyota's Timo Glock has reiterated that he is feeling fine heading into the Hungarian Grand Prix this weekend, even though he had that scary looking shunt at Hockenheim less than two weeks ago.
Glock, who looked set to finish in the points until his accident, was clearly shaken by the impact and had to be helped from the cockpit by the medical team, who then transported him to hospital for checks which, thankfully showed nothing more than a little soreness.
Indeed the rookie was so well that he even took part in the Cologne-based outfit's test at Jerez last week, running on the penultimate day and completing 78 laps in total around the 4.428 kilometre track in the extreme south of Spain.
He suffered no ill effects and is now optimistic about what he can achieve this weekend in Budapest.
"After my incident at Hockenheim I am fine and raring to go. I have had the chance to relax a little at home so I am definitely ready for this weekend. Also, I had a day in the car at Jerez preparing for the Hungarian Grand Prix and that went well," he stated in the countdown to the last F1 race before the summer break.
"I enjoy visiting Budapest. I went there on holiday a few years ago and it was a fun place and also I have had some exciting races there, particularly in 2006. Obviously it's a twisty circuit and we will have a different aero package for this race. I know the guys at the factory are pushing extremely hard so I am sure we will be competitive again.
"Qualifying will be really important this weekend because overtaking is very difficult in a Formula 1 car. I have had some fun races in GP2 in Hungary and overtaken a lot of cars but it's completely different in Formula 1.
"Even though the result wasn't what I wanted in Hockenheim, I was competitive in the race and fighting to finish in the top six so I am optimistic again for this weekend."
Toyota chassis general manager, Pascal Vasselon meanwhile is also confident the team can score points and stay in front of Red Bull Racing and Renault in the constructors' championship, even if it is very close, with only 3 points between them.
The team have also made some tweaks to their high downforce aero package especially for this event: "We have made further developments on our high downforce package since Monaco and we are pretty happy with the results and looking forward to this race," Vasselon confirmed.
"We were in the top six there last year so we are optimistic. It's going to be a tough battle between now and the end of the year. It's tight with Red Bull, and Renault is there too after the result in Germany, but it's our objective to stay fourth in the Constructors' Championship. We are ready for the challenge."
