Following his operation to remove his appendix, Timo Glock returned to drive the Virgin Racing car in Australia last weekend.

But while Glock didn?t complain about any discomfort following his return at Melbourne, whispers in the paddock suggested that his recent surgery may prove a problem in Sepang.

The Malaysian Grand Prix is a lot more physically demanding than the season opener in Australia.

The humidity and high speed corners will prove to be a different challenge for the German, but he doesn?t feel that he will be at risk of any complications.

‘It’s all okay. I just feel I couldn’t do a proper workout in the last three weeks. But it’s nothing critical. My muscles just realise that they have to wake up again!? Glock told Autosport Magazine.

‘It’s not so bad that I would go to Malaysia and would be worried about my fitness. The lower muscles are just a bit…unused, and that’s it. Malaysia shouldn’t be a problem.’
