Kobayashi fills in for Glock

Toyota’s Third Driver Kamui Kobayashi was called up to stand in for regular Race Driver Timo Glock who’s apparently come down with a bit of a nasty cold/fever, for Friday’s Japanese Grand Prix practice. (NO H1N1 Jokes here…) As team doctors have prescribed his taking the day off to recover in time for a hopeful return for Qualifying and the Race.

Having just completed watching yesterdays miserably WET practice session, I’d say that Timo picked a good day to stay in bed and let Kobayashi, the reigning GP2 Asia Champion entertain his Home crowd.

Interestingly, Toyota’s other Race Driver Jarno Trulli, was sick upon arriving in Japan on Wednesday, missing a team PR function, so hopefully the drivers just had a bout of Bad Sushi? Sorry ‘bout that… Couldn’t resist…
