Glock sent to the back of German GP grid
Timo Glock has been relegated to the back of the grid for tomorrow's German Grand Prix for blocking Fernando Alonso in qualifying.
The Toyota driver was hit with a three-place penalty -- albeit costing him only one place on the grid as he qualified 19th -- after balking the Spaniard while distracted by discussing strategy with his pit.
"I had just made a mistake on the lap and I was asking if I had to stay out or come in for new tires," Glock told AUTOSPORT. "They said stay out, I accelerated, looked behind me and there was Alonso in the mirror. I just didn't see him."
The German was also given a reprimand for the incident, as it was deemed to be "potentially dangerous" by stewards.
Glock also admitted that he could opt to start from the pit-lane for tomorrow's race.
