Timo Glock says there are ‘no downsides’ to his partnership with Charles Pic amid reports of a rift between the two drivers and speculation that the Frenchman could be replaced next season.

Problems surfaced in Hungary when the German criticised his teammate for holding him up in qualifying, although Glock has since denied there are any issues at Marussia.

“He’s quite strong for his first year in Formula 1 and we work together quite well. There are no downsides to it,” he told F1Pulse.com exclusively.

“Let’s see what he can do next year or what he does if he stays or if he changes team. We’ll see,” he added.

The former Toyota driver has come under pressure from his rookie teammate this year and their battle in Spa demonstrated the intense rivalry between the two.

Glock initially passed Pic into the La Source hairpin but the Frenchman re-took the position exiting the corner, forcing Glock to pull another move on the run down to Les Combes.

“Until a certain point it was good. On the other side, we had some good discussions after that but in general it was a good fight,” the 30-year-old pointed out.

Since moving to the team in 2010, Glock has had three different teammates in three years but the German, who is contracted until the end of 2014, doesn't see this as an issue.

“No, it’s not a problem for me because I just try to help the team and bring it forward. So far I don’t have a problem with changing teammates,” he explained referring to speculation that Pic may give way to recently appointed reserve Max Chilton next season.
