The German Formula One driver Timo Glock has been ruled out of the Brazilian Grand Prix because of injuries he suffered in qualifying at Suzuka last week, his Toyota team revealed today. Glock was initially diagnosed with only a minor cut to his leg following his accident in qualifying for the Japanese Grand Prix, but subsequent medical checks in Germany have revealed a cracked vertebra. Doctors have ruled him out of next Sunday's race, where third driver Kamui Kobayashi will replace Glock at Interlagos.
Kamui took part in Friday practice at Suzuka while Timo recovered from illness. *AFP
