Marussia’s Timo Glock will play no part in Sunday’s 2012 Formula 1 Grand Prix of Europe after taking doctors’ advice on the stomach bug that also caused him to miss Saturday’s qualifying session.

“Timo received medical guidance yesterday afternoon and his symptoms suggest that he is suffering from an intestinal infection,” read a team statement. “He has been advised that it would be unwise for him to race given the severity of the complaint and that he should focus instead on recuperating.”

Glock, who had completed 44 laps in Friday’s and Saturday’s practice sessions in Spain, spent Saturday evening resting at his hotel in Valencia and is said to be in good spirits. The German will return home later on Sunday.
