Timo Glock is likely to start the German Grand Prix from the pitlane, following his demotion to the back of the grid.

Stewards penalised and reprimanded the Toyota driver, who qualified a miserable 19th at the Nurburgring, for blocking Fernando Alonso on Saturday.

His three-spot demotion guaranteed a back-of-the-grid start, moving Toyota to shift Glock to the pitlane and benefit from non-parc ferme status in the hours before the race.

Asked on Sunday morning if he is due to start from the pitlane, he said: "I think so."

After qualifying, he indicated the Cologne based team had plenty to work on. "I don't know if it is only the temperatures (affecting performing) or something else as well," said Glock.
