Timo Glock is expecting to fully ramp up his preparations for the forthcoming Brazilian Grand Prix within "two or three days".

The German, who was also on the Suzuka sidelines on Friday with a heavy cold and fever, had to sit out Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix after cutting his left leg in a qualifying crash.

He limped around the Suzuka paddock on Sunday with bulky blue bandages filling the length of his leg, where underneath a 5.5cm wound continued to retain fluid throughout Saturday night and the wee hours of Sunday morning in Japan.

But 27-year-old Glock, now publicly on the 2010 driver market after Toyota failed to pick up the option on his contract, is confident he will be back up to speed at Interlagos in two weeks.

"I think it is a fact that I will be completely fit in two or three days," he is quoted as saying by the German news agency SID.
