Simona De Silvestro also officially joined the Sauber team today. The 25-year-old Swiss has been racing in the US since 2006. She has competed in IndyCar for the past four years, where she also stepped on the podium for the first time at a race in Houston last year.
She joined the Sauber team in order to obtain the super license needed to race in Formula One. She is expected to need this no later than 2015, when she is expected to get a regular racing seat on the team. Until then, she will test and train in a simulator.
“With this, I have made a big step towards realizing my life dreams. I am really happy to have had the opportunity in this wonderful team, ”said De Silvestrova. “Sauber is a team with a rich legacy and is the only Swiss team in Formula One, which makes it all the more exciting for me.
I cannot thank Monishi Kaltenborn and Peter Sauber enough for their support and confidence in my abilities, and for the opportunity offered, ”she added.
