Germany's Auto Motor und Sport reports that the Virgin driver 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 laughed.

"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 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."
