Timo Glock was ruled out of the European Grand Prix on Sunday following an illness that the German has been suffering since Thursday.
The Marussia driver has been affected by a stomach bug which forced him to skip qualifying on Saturday although he was allowed to race by the stewards based on his practice times.
“Timo received medical guidance yesterday afternoon and his symptoms suggest that he is suffering from an intestinal infection,” confirmed the team in a 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.
“Timo spent the evening resting at his hotel in Valencia and is in good spirits,” it said.
The 30-year-old is scheduled to go back home late on Sunday.
