    Muchas gracias por el aporte, socia.
    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    Ha empezado muy bien este año, se nota el cambio de motor porque el Lotus del año pasado era una caca.

    Voy poniendome al dia con la Indycar este año, acabo de ver la carrera de Sao Paulo y, bufff ¡carreraza!, han batido el record de Safety Car (8) o como aqui lo llaman "full course caution". Muy buena toda la carrera con multiples adelantamientos, incidentes...



    Y sobre todo finalazo, las ultimas vueltas, con todo por decidir, han sido tremendisimas. Aparte, grandisima carrera de Oriol Servia.

    De Silvestro ficha por Sauber como 'piloto afiliada'




    14 febrero 2014 – Simona de Silvestro se ha unido a Sauber como 'piloto afiliada' de cara a la temporada 2014 de Fórmula 1.

    La piloto suiza de 25 años ha estado compitiendo en los Estados Unidos desde 2006 y en los cuatro últimos años ha participado en las IndyCar Series, logrando su primer podio en la prueba celebrada en las calles de Houston en los compases finales de la temporada 2013.

    Se une a Sauber con vistas a lograr la súper licencia y asegurarse un asiento de carreras para la temporada 2015 de Fórmula 1, y se espera que participe en tests y entrenando en el simulador además de recibir preparación mental y física.

    “Se trata de un paso importante para conseguir un sueño de hace mucho tiempo y estoy muy feliz de disponer de esta oportunidad de dar este paso con un equipo tan importante,” dijo de Silvestro.

    “El Sauber F1 Team es un equipo con gran legado y la única escudería suiza de la Fórmula 1, que en mi opinión lo hace todavía más emocionante.”

    “No puedo mostrar suficiente agradecimiento a Monisha Kaltenborn y a Peter Sauber por su apoyo y por creer en mi capacidad para darme esta oportunidad. Estoy muy emocionada de poder tener esta plataforma excepcionalmente única con la que prepararme para asumir este desafío.”

    Supongo que llevará un dineral debajo del brazo


    Me alegro mucho por Simona, pero que baje de la nube, como no tenga un patrocinio muyyyyyy importante que se olvide de conseguir un asiento en 2015 como dice tal cual están las cosas por desgracia

    Interview: #DeSilvestro Getting to know Formula E’s exciting leading lady…

    Posted on August 20, 2015





    Simona de Silvestro has only taken part in one Formula E weekend, but somehow she already feels like an established name. Maybe that’s to do with her being a truly exciting talent in the world of motorsport.

    What I do know… her determination is obvious, and she is one of the loveliest people you could ever hope to meet…

    I think everybody was really excited to see you on the Formula E grid in London, you had a lot of support and you out qualified and raced your teammate during the final round. How did you find your first Formula E weekend?

    Yeah it was really interesting for me you know, I learned a lot, especially that the Formula E car is a little bit different. To drive in London, I think it’s one of the tougher tracks the calendar went to and especially for me to jump in the car at the last race I think was a pretty big challenge but it went ok. For sure the result wasn’t quite what I was hoping for but I think we can be kind of happy with how the weekend went.

    And now you’re leading the team through testing. When you raced in London was it always the plan that you would continue on with Andretti this season, or was it just meant to be one weekend?

    Yeah at the time I was really lucky to be a part of the Andretti racing family, I’ve been doing Indycar with them and they called me to do the race in London. I wasn’t quite sure what was going to happen after that, for sure it was something I was maybe thinking about… you know we have great sponsors here with Amlin and TE Connectivity and somehow things just went on from there and now I’m here doing all the testing.

    And now you’ve been confirmed as an Amlin Andretti race driver for Season 2; What excites you most about being in Formula E?
    I think being a part of a new series like this, especially with the new technology, I think it’s kind of cool as a driver to be a part of it right from the beginning.

    How are you learning the tracks ahead of the new season, do you feel you’re playing catch up in any way to other drivers?

    Yeah well right now we haven’t really done that much, but for sure you know when you don’t know the tracks and the other people have run at them it’s a little bit of a disadvantage. But at the end of the day I think these cars are pretty tricky to drive and I think the biggest thing is getting really comfortable in the car and then I think the tracks shouldn’t be an issue.

    You mention the cars being pretty tricky, what’s the most challenging thing about them?

    I think with these cars the braking is a little tricky, it’s quite different to any other race car I’ve driven in and I think that takes a little bit of time to get used to to be honest.

    Now Amlin Andretti has had a bit of a difficult time at testing so far, have the team been able to identify what the main problems are?
    Yeah we have some software issues and some things that aren’t quite going right where we want to and for sure we’re not where we want to be. We have a lot of work ahead of us but the team is working hard and hopefully by the time we go to Beijing we will be ok. With the powertrain it’s definitely quite different I think how they built it. it looks pretty nice. We haven’t been able to unleash the full potential of it right now but hopefully we get to do that pretty soon

    You’ve done some testing for the Sauber F1 team before, is an F1 superlicense and racing in Formula 1 still something that still interests you?

    Yeah I think F1 is always a dream, but I think right now we kind of all know how Formula 1 is, it’s not really dependant on how good you are or anything like that and it’s a little bit unfortunate, but you know, you never know. Right now my focus is here on the Formula E season and you never know what happens. I think if you’re running well here in Formula E the level is really, really strong and if I’m able to be running up front I think that will show that I can be pretty good.

    And just so the fans can get to know you a little better Simona… How did you get into motor racing?
    I started racing when I was six years old in go-karts. My dad has a car dealership so I was always around cars and that’s how it kind of started.

    What’s been the best moment of your racing career so far?
    My best moment so far… I think you know finishing second in Houston… the third female driver ever to score a podium!… yeah it was pretty special, we were close to winning that race! But also I think winning Rookie of the Year at the Indy 500 is also pretty cool.

    This next question I’ve also uploaded as an audio file, because it’s a clear example of just how lovely Simona is to be around…





    Now I’ve read that you’ve been given the nickname ‘The Iron Maiden’… is that right, because you seem all smiles!…

    (Yeah I know! *laughs*)
    Where has that nickname come from?

    Well it came actually… when I came to the US my nickname used to be ‘The Swiss Miss’ *laughs* which sounded kind of a little dull… and um, I had a really big crash during practice in 2011 in the Indy 500. The car flipped into the fence and burned my hands pretty badly; it happened on the Thursday and I qualified the car on Saturday with second degree burns, so the fans started calling me ‘The Iron Maiden’… which is pretty cool! *excited smile*… I know it’s a band actually, and I’ve started to listen to some of their songs *laughs* but I haven’t quite gotten into it yet.

    Have you got the name on your helmet?

    No I don’t!… a lot of people have been telling me to have the logo or something on there, but we’ll have to think about it.

    And you mentioned Switzerland, it looks like you could be getting a home race soon with a Swiss ePrix maybe as soon as Season 3…

    Yeah it would be great! I think everybody in Switzerland would be really excited to have an ePrix; especially I think me or even all the Swiss drivers who are in the field, because we haven’t raced at home in a long time!

    Formula E really lets the fans get close to the action and we’ve seen many young fans come up to you and ask for pictures or autograph during the pit walks. Can you give any advice to, particularly any young female fans out there, who maybe dream of being a racing driver?

    Yeah I think that in anything they want to do, to not be scared and not try it. If you’re passionate about something go and do it and you know, the people will help you achieve your dreams. That’s the biggest thing, don’t be shy about trying things out. Even for me, racing isn’t maybe the first things a girl gets into, but I’ve always been passionate about it, just kept working at it, and now here I am. So I think just keep believing in yourself.

    Qué mala suerte tiene esta chica. Su compañera se estampó nada más comenzar la carrera, cosa que no le hizo nada de gracia, naturalmente.

    Entrevista a Simona tras conseguir sus primeros puntos en la Fórmula E en el circuito de Long Beach.


    Simona de Silvestro 1st Female Formula E Driver To Score Points

    April 11, 2016 by Britt Hysen



    They don’t call Simona de Silvestro the “Iron Maiden” for nothing. The Swiss race car driver is the first woman to join the American Formula E racing team, making her the first woman to also score points in the series. As an Andretti Autosport IndyCar series racer, Simona launched her career as the winner of the Atlantic race at the 2008 Grand Prix of Long Beach, making her the second woman to win in that series and putting her on the map as a star in the making.

    MiLLENNiAL met up with Simona at the 2016 Formula E Long Beach Grand Prix where we learned how she got into racing and what her plans are for Formula E.

    When did you realize you were good at driving and that you could make a career out of it?


    It started with my Dad. He has a dealership in Switzerland and I was always around cars. He did a go-kart demonstration when I was about 4-years-old and I fell in love with it and wanted a go-kart. He gave me one when I was six and that’s how it started.
    I played different sports but racing was always what I wanted to do.

    How did you turn pro?


    When I was racing in Europe and I made the decision to come to the US in 2006. We didn’t quite have the money to stay in Europe and I found a sponsor here in the US to come race. It was planned for one year and that ended up being eight years. My entire career has pretty much been shaped here in the US.

    What challenges have you had to overcome being a woman in a traditionally male-dominated sport?


    It’s hard to say because racing is difficult in any case whether you are male or female. But the biggest thing as a woman is maybe that you have to prove yourself more. Every time you are in the car, everyone is going to watch more carefully what you are doing. Those are maybe the factors that are a little bit trickier in getting the right opportunity. Racing is very dependent on the team you have around you and the car you have and to be able to get that chance, you have to fight a little harder.

    You are the first female electric car racing driver to drive for the American team, what did that do for your career and how does that affect you moving forward?


    Well, it was interesting because a year and a half ago I was trying to get into Formula One and it didn’t quite happen the way I wanted it to so I ended up coming back to the States to race in Indy cars. I did the first two races last year with Andretti and then one of the sponsors decided to come into the new Formula E and that’s how I ended up doing it. It’s quite different but a lot of fun.

    Is Formula E going to be a stepping-stone to getting into Formula One?


    No Formula E is quite it’s own little niche and it’s going to grow as it’s own sport, so hopefully I get to stay in Formula E and really get established here.

    What are your interests outside of racing?


    I like doing different sports, but I like going to the movies or chilling with friends and trying different restaurants. Normal stuff. I try to relax. We are quite busy with racing, so usually when you go home you try not to think too much about racing and try to be as normal as you can.

    Give me one thing most fans would not suspect about you?


    I am scared of heights. I don’t really like flying even though I spend most of my time in airplanes.

    INTERVIEW: Why de Silvestro chose Supercars

    Tuesday, 13 September 2016

    Mark Glendenning / Images by IMS Photo, LAT

    Being a professional race driver requires a degree of open-mindedness. Aside from the well-connected or fortunate few, it's a life frequently punctuated by instability. Watertight opportunities can fall apart at a moment's notice; every expired contract can spin into an unexpected career shift.

    Nevertheless, there are surprises. In the past three years, Simona de Silvestro has gone from IndyCar, to a flirtation with F1, to Formula E, to an appearance at the Bathurst 1000, to a three-year, full-time deal in Australia's Supercar championship, starting from 2017. Even by today's standards, it's a weird career trajectory.

    "I definitely would agree with that," she tells RACER.com. "When I was racing in IndyCar, Supercars certainly wasn't on my mind. But last year's Bathurst was the first time I got to drive the car, and I really enjoyed myself; I enjoyed the style of racing. And it was a new challenge for me, because I'd never driven in closed cars, and as a driver you're always wanting to evolve and learn."





    That ability to adapt to unfamiliar cars and styles of racing isn't a bad skill to have when you're struggling to find a place to drop anchor. Her four-year spell as an IndyCar full-timer ended in the pursuit of the glimmer of a chance to become a Formula 1 driver with Sauber. Sponsorship problems forced that window closed after just two tests in a two-year-old car, and left her looking for something else to do: a question that was answered with an unsatisfying year in Formula E with Andretti, and a one-off Indy 500 comeback in 2015. In that context, it's easy to see why knowing what she'll be doing for the next three years might be appealing to someone in de Silvestro's situation.

    "I'd say that since 2013 it has been frustrating," she admits. "There was the dream of Formula 1 that didn't quite happen. And then to be honest, it was quite a struggle to find a way back. I tried to get back into IndyCar, but a lot there depends on sponsorship, and I didn't succeed in finding the money to get myself a full-time ride. Then I got the chance to drive in Formula E, which was quite different. It's an interesting category, but I think I struggled to get used to the car and how to drive it.

    "Then this opportunity came up. In my career there have definitely been a lot of ups and downs, but I think where I'm at right now ... it's really special to get such an opportunity to go into a series and know that I can race there for three years, and really work on that and develop that."

    De Silvestro's decision to pursue F1 in 2014 might stand as one of racing's great 'what-ifs' on both sides of the Atlantic. Many in F1 have spoken of the value that a quick female driver would bring to the world championship, and when one finally came along, she couldn't find the budget needed to get over the line. And the move also came at a time when her IndyCar career was finally starting to gain some momentum: she finished 2013 with a five-race streak of top 10s, which was a first in a career that had largely been spent battling with unfancied equipment.




    "That's the really frustrating part," she says. "My KV season was pretty good; I think it could have been a little better because some races didn't quite go our way. I'd have loved to have been in one of the top cars so I could see what might have happened. But sometimes that chance comes quickly, and sometimes it doesn't. It is what it is.

    "Leaving IndyCar was quite a hard decision to make. I'd always had this dream of F1, and this chance came up, and in IndyCar at that time all of the big teams were already full. The people [that had an opening] wanted quite a lot of sponsorship. So I don't know. It's hard to say whether I would have found a GOOD place [for 2014], and I really wanted to be in a team where I could be competitive. That window didn't quite happen at the end of 2013, unfortunately.

    "I would have liked to come back to IndyCar. I am really passionate about it, and it's a car that really suits me. I think I could have done really well there, so it's definitely something that still feels unfinished. But it's not in the stars right now. That's the one point in my career where I really feel things could have been a little bit better.

    "But you never know. Now, the Supercar opportunity ... I think it's going to make me better. I want to be in a series where I can be successful. At the end of the day you want to be competitive, you want to be with the right team, and I believe that's going to happen in Supercars. That's really special."
