Honda rider Lorenzo, still recovering from wrist and rib injuries, said on Thursday that he will be "extra" careful not to crash again at Termas de Rio Hondo.
a strong possibility for Sunday, Lorenzo stressed that he has a poor feeling, he will be content merely to get through the day without an accident.
"If it is law, will depend on lot on the feeling," Lorenzo conceded . "If the feeling is good, knowing that I am injured, I will try to do my best.
" If the feeling is not so good and I need to take so many risks to be competitive, maybe is better to save a little bit the day and not to crash to get lost again.
"I think my real opportunity will arrive in the next tracks, not this time.
" If it is dry, try to ride a little bit better , more of the bike, improve the little bit of the position on the bike in the warm-up, and just try to get closer than this one second that i get from Marc [Marquez]. "
Lorenzo set the 1
"I went a little bit wide and I touch the green zone so they take away the first fast lap that was the fastest, this made me go back, but doesn't change so much, "he said.
" I will be a little bit more right on the start, little bit behind, but doesn't change five or six positions, it's not a big drama. Was fair to lose this lap. "
Lorenzo set the lap that was later deleted while running right behind teammate Marquez.
Comparing himself to his teammate, Lorenzo said that in a few places he was faster than Marc, but on others "he loses so much still"
He recalled: "I just was half a second slower than Marc. In some areas I was faster than him, not so many. In others I was the same as him but in some others I lose so much still.
"I need to understand these areas what is happening, it is difficult to improve on the warm-up and the race but for next tracks and the future will be good information. "
