Glock laments test setback

Timo Glock admits it's a "shame" that Marussia won't take part in the final pre-season test after their new car failed to pass a mandatory crash test.

The Banbury-based squad confirmed on Monday that they would not be in action at the Circuit de Catalunya later this week after their MR01 failed the last of its 18 FIA-observed crash tests.

Marussia are hopeful that their new challenger will be ready for the first race of the year in Australia, but it does mean Glock and rookie team-mate Charles Pic will head to Melbourne with no testing mileage in the car under their belt.

"Of course it is a shame that we can't test in Barcelona ... (But) safety comes first," Glock told German press agency dpa.

"We will be competing with our new car in Melbourne."
