Simona de Silvestro
Simona participated in an IZOD IndyCar Series test on December 8 & 9, 2009 at Sebring International Raceway, a joint effort between HVM Racing & Team Stargate Worlds. She is currently competing full–time in the IZOD IndyCar Series for HVM Racing in the 2010 season.
On May 22, 2010 she qualified in 22nd Position for the 94th Indianapolis 500. She finished the race in 14th place, and earned Chase Rookie of the Year honors. She suffered a burned right hand after a fiery crash at the Firestone 550 at Texas Motor Speedway this past Saturday night on June 5. HVM Racing strongly criticized IZOD IndyCar Series safety officials for their response to that accident.
