I said last time that Red Bull would be the last teammate head to head, I slightly lied. THIS will be the last one, maybe... Anyway, Timo Glock, he's left Marussia but just how well has he been doing in F1? In his six seasons of F1 he's only finished ahead of his teammate in the Drivers' Championship just once.

Timo Head to Heads

I said last time that Red Bull would be the last teammate head to head, I slightly lied. THIS will be the last one, maybe… Anyway, Timo Glock, he’s left Marussia but just how well has he been doing in F1? In his six seasons of F1 he’s only finished ahead of his teammate in the Drivers’ Championship just once.

I’ve already written about Glock and Pic head to head in 2012 here so this will be from 2011 to his Jordan debut in 2004.

Hard to really compare these stats in a car at the back of the grid, especially the worst finish as that is generally just down to how many other cars have retired from the race.

Glock ahead, but not by too much in the averages, he had one more retirement, one non-classified finish, one non-start and finished below rookie d’Ambrosio in the Drivers’ Championship.

Glock performed much better in the Virgin in qualifying than di Grassi, both had the same best race finish of 14th but it was di Grassi’s 15th that edged him ahead in the Championship.

Slightly unexpected qualifying dominance from Glock, also surprising that there were only six races in which both cars were classified as having finished the race. Despite the quite large difference in the average grid position they have the exact same average race finish.

Some more interesting stats to show with Glock higher up the grid, still behind his teammate though.

Not really too much to say, Trulli the better qualifier, Glock the better racer. If you exclude Trulli’s results in the 3 races that Glock couldn’t take part in then Glock would have finished ahead of him in the Championship by just 1.5 points.

Much of the same as above really, Trulli was better in qualifying and Glock slightly better in the race.

Or maybe not! Trulli was better all round, a 6/6 split in the 12 races that both finished but a better average finish and average grid position for the Italian.

Obviously it’s very hard to compare the two here, Heidfeld did the full season, Glock did just four races, to save myself some time Heidfeld’s qualifying stats are only from the races with Glock as his teammate. However in Glock’s rookie season, with only four races, he did rather well, only a touch behind Heidfeld.

Not too bad from Glock, finished ahead of Heidfeld in his first race but was replaced again by Pantano until the last three races, where Glock failed to score any more points.

In his six seasons Glock hasn’t particularly impressed me, but for a team like Marussia he is a solid driver, I won’t really miss him though if I’m honest.
