Paretta Autosport’s Simona De Silvestro in the No.16 KiwiCo Chevrolet says that she is confident that she can push the car following the opening practice session on Friday at the Honda Indy 200 at the Mid-Ohio Sportscar Course.
The Swiss driver finished the day in 25th place having completed 33 laps and speaking following the action she said:
I can feel the car again. At Road America, I felt a bit like the car was driving me. I feel confident that I can push, and push in a direction that I want because it may be a little different than what the other guys have on their cars. In that sense, we are making steps forward.
Team Principal and team owner Beth Paretta commented saying:
It was great first session back at Mid-Ohio. It’s good to see Simona settling into the car. It is also nice to see our roster filling out with women returning from last year’s Indianapolis 500 and new women joining our effort.
