Timo Glock expects to be "totally fit" for the British Grand Prix after being forced to withdraw from last weekend's race in Valencia.

An unwell Glock was running a reduced programme for the European Grand Prix but deteriorated after FP3 and was forced to sit out qualifying. After being diagnosed with an intestinal infection Glock also had to miss the race, but he has now said that he is recovering and expects to be able to start training again in the next few days.

"Generally I am feeling well again," Glock said. "I still feel a bit weak at the knees, but otherwise I am okay. It was obviously a pity that I was forced to miss the race in Valencia, but that is the way it goes sometimes. You cannot just ignore such physical signs. I am on my way to a full recovery, and although it will be a few more days before I am allowed to train again."

Glock confirmed that he was still likely to be face with a busy schedule but expects to be fully fit to race at Silverstone.

"I am now looking forward to the upcoming weeks. Included on the programme is my home race with my Marussia F1 Team, which means it will be a busy and demanding period with lots of events and activities. However, by then I should be totally fit again."
