Glock carrying finger injury in Valencia
24 June, 2011
Jun.24 (GMM) Virgin Racing’s Timo Glock will race at Valencia this weekend despite nursing a deep cut on his left index finger.
Auto Motor und Sport reports that Glock cut himself whilst slicing bread earlier this week.
“I did it on Tuesday. It’s a pretty deep cut – I thought I had cut it (the finger) off,” he joked.
“I have to use the steering wheel slightly differently because I can’t really bend it, and I will use the gear shift paddle with the three lower fingers.”
The 29-year-old admitted Virgin Racing has bigger problems than his sore finger.
“Hispania have taken a giant step,” said Glock in Valencia. “I’m afraid that they will be in front of us here.”
