Justin Wil­son on Simona De Sil­ve­stro

F1 Racing - - IN­SIDER -

“Simona’s done fan­tas­ti­cally in IndyCar. She’s by far the most com­pet­i­tive fe­male driver there has been in the se­ries. She races hard, there’s no giv­ing up and there’s no soft side to her. She’s hard as nails and she makes it hap­pen. Watch her through the cor­ner and she is re­ally hus­tling the car, so she’s not just point and squirt. Some driv­ers are a lit­tle slower in but get re­ally good ex­its, whereas Simona pushes it in and pushes it out of the cor­ner, too.

“She cer­tainly has the tal­ent to do it. I’d be very in­ter­ested to see how she gets on be­cause she has got the grit and de­ter­mi­na­tion to do what­ever it takes to make this work.

“When she was in IndyCar the fo­cus was al­ways on per­for­mance and re­sults then what­ever else came af­ter that. She’s not there for the life­style, she’s there to win. I hope it works out for her.”
