Rosberg played down the impact of foot injury on Bahrain drivePain may be holding championship leader Nico Rosberg back this weekend in Bahrain.

Although clearly ahead of the rest of the field, Mercedes’ German driver seemed a few tenths off teammate Lewis Hamilton’s pace in Friday practice.

The German publications Bild and Sport Bild might have discovered the reason.

In the Bahrain paddock, correspondents Bianca Garloff, Ralf Bach and Nicola Pohl noticed that when wearing casual clothes, Rosberg is sliding his left foot only partially into his shoe.

“I hurt my toe while jogging on the beach,” he told Bild. Sport Bild reports that the injury was sustained last week, when the 28-year-old was holidaying in Dubai.

Rosberg confirmed that he brakes with his left foot but played down the impact of the injury on his driving. (GMM)
