Timo Glock on Thursday said he expects to be "totally fit" for next weekend's British Formula One Grand Prix.
The German had to sit out last weekend's Valencia race with an intestinal infection.
In a media statement on Thursday, his employer Marussia F1 said 30 year old Glock is "back on the road to recovery"
Glock said : “Generally I am feeling much better. I still feel a little weak in the legs, but otherwise I am okay.
“It was obviously very disappointing that I was forced to miss the race in Valencia, but that is the way it goes sometimes. You cannot just ignore the symptoms I was experiencing. I am now on my way to a full recovery, although it will be a few more days before I am allowed to train again.
“I am now looking forward to the forthcoming weeks. Included on the programme is my home race with my Marussia F1 Team, which means it will be a busy and demanding period with lots of events and activities. However, by then I should be totally fit again.”
