Timo Glock (born March 18, 1982 in Lindenfels, Bergstraße, Darmstadt, Hesse, West Germany) is a German former Formula One driver who drove for Marussia F1 in 2012, having previously driven for Jordan in 2004, Toyota in 2008 and 2009, and Virgin (Marussia's predecessor) in 2010 and 2011. He won the GP2 championship in 2007.
In his début season with Jordan, his first race was at the Canadian Grand Prix. He originally finished 11th in the race, but due to disqualifications hit out at both Williams and Toyota drivers, he was promoted into 7th in the final race results.
During qualifying for the 2009 Japanese Grand Prix, Glock crashed heavily into the barriers at the final corner. Glock suffered back pain and a wound on his left leg from the crash, and he would be replaced by test driver Kamui Kobayashi for the remainder of the season.
He drove for Virgin Racing for the 2010 season.
He left Marussia before the 2013 season by mutual consent and instead participated in the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters for BMW where he won the season finale in Hockenheim.
