Timo Glock admitted he was surprised by his result at the Singapore Grand Prix after scoring his first podium of the season.
The Toyota driver had started from sixth position but worked his way trough the field and finished in second place behind McLaren's Lewis Hamilton. The result was Glock's best this season and his first podium since the 2008 Hungarian Grand Prix. It was also Toyota's first top-three finish since Jarno Trulli finished third in Bahrain.
"It was a really good race for me," said Glock. "The start was a bit of a mess in the first corner. I knew I could not have the pace of the first two or three guys, so I just settled down and concentrated on me and what I could do with my car. I knew before coming here we were good last that the driver can make a difference, and from practice we just picked up. We concentrated on the car and my crew.
"In qualifying I thought we could easily get into Q3 but we struggled in Q1. Then got better and better in qualifying, shame to not use last set of tires.
"I lost the view of where the others guys were, and then I changed to the option tire and they said I was P2. I was really surprised."
Teammate Trulli finished down in 12th position.
