Timo Glock will race on at Valencia this weekend despite nursing a deep cut on his left index finger.
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."
