Marussia's Timo Glock will miss qualifying for the European Grand Prix in Valencia due to a stomach bug.

The German because unwell on Thursday, and after struggling through Friday's practice sessions, started to feel unwell again during P3 on Saturday morning.

After consulting with doctors, the team decided to withdraw the 30-year-old from the qualifying session.

After setting times within 107% of the fastest during the practice sessions, Glock is likely to be allowed to start the race. However, it remains to be seen if he will be well enough to take part.

In a statement the team said: "Marussia F1 Team driver Timo Glock will not take part in this afternoon's Qualifying session for tomorrow's European Grand Prix for health reasons.

"Timo has been fighting a stomach bug since Thursday. He felt well enough to take part in yesterday's Free Practice sessions and had seemed to be improving. This morning, after Free Practice 3, he started to feel unwell again. It is clear that at this time, he is not sufficiently well to take part in a demanding Qualifying session and needs to recuperate further.

"Timo and the Team will now seek further medical guidance this afternoon. Until such time as this guidance has been received, no decisions will be reached regarding tomorrow's race. A further statement will be issued on Sunday morning."
