Mercedes has confirmed Nico Rosberg will test on the second day of F1 testing at the Circuit de Catalunya despite suffering with a trapped nerve in his neck.

The German picked up the injury between the two F1 tests and was considered something of a potential doubt for his scheduled run in the W06 today.

However, Mercedes says Rosberg will test as scheduled for the time being, though test driver Pascal Wehrlein - who substituted for an unwell Lewis Hamilton yesterday - is on standby should he be required again.
