Former Formula 1 driver Timo Glock will drive a BMW in the German touring car series this season.

BMW said on Friday it was very pleased to have Glock back six years after he was an F1 test driver for the BMW Sauber team.

Glock started his career as a junior driver for BMW. He also had a stint in the ChampCar series.

He had three podium places for Toyota in F1 and also drove for Virgin Racing and Marussia, which succeeded Virgin. Marussia and Glock parted ways this month.

“It was not always easy to spend three years in Formula 1 regularly watching other drivers from behind who were sometimes doing a worse job than me, but were still way ahead as they were in better cars,” Glock pointed out.

“You want to finally be back challenging at the front of the field again... Now is the right time for me to make a change."

The German driver tested a BMW touring car this week in Valencia and impressed the team immediately.

“I know Formula 1 drivers have rarely been able to make an impact in the DTM,” he said. “I want to prove I am different and will at some point be challenging for victories.”
