Paretta Autosport’s Simona De Silvestro in the No.16 ROCKET Pro TPO Chevrolet says that she believes that the team can challenge for a top ten finish in Sunday’s 105th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge.

Speaking to Paddock Eye on Thursday a the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, De Silvestro said that the first thing they want to do is to finish the race but she believes that the team have the potential and the race pace to finish in the top ten.

The Swiss driver said that she has been really impressed with the team and team owner Beth Paretta went about putting the team together.

De Silvestro said she has been more open-minded with the Aeroscreen and how it works in traffic. She said that it has been extremely beneficial to have technical input from Team Penske and that it has been great working with the girls in the team who have got up to speed extremely quickly.

De Silvestro also said that the car has been really quick but that they lost a bit of speed for qualifying but that she hopes that they rediscover that pace on Friday for Carb Day and in turn for the race on Sunday.
