Fiat Yamaha's Jorge Lorenzo has been passed fit to race at the British Grand Prix this weekend but has said he will be approaching the race with a bit more caution.
The youngster has benefited from a week of complete rest since being ruled out of his home race with concussion, although he will ride at Donington Park through the discomfort of a fresh skin graft to the fourth and fifth fingers of his right hand.
He will wear a special silk glove underneath a larger racing glove this weekend and will require treatment after each practice session. This weekend the Mallorcan and his crew will be focusing on recovery and regaining confidence, rather than results, although Lorenzo has had success at the Leicestershire circuit in the past, having won from pole position in the 250cc class in 2006.
He said: "“It has been a tough couple of weeks for me and watching the Barcelona race from my hospital bed wasn’t much fun so I’m looking forward to getting back on the bike, although I think I have to ride a little more cautiously this weekend!    
"It is like starting again from scratch so I have to change my approach. What I can say about Donington is that I have got great memories from there – I took 250cc victory in 2006 and last year I was riding really well in the wet. It is a fast circuit, other than the final section, and it will be interesting to ride there on a MotoGP bike for the first time.”
