Veturi Formula E Team has strengthened its ranks with the addition of Switzerland’s Simona De Silvestro to the driver line-up.
After four seasons in IndyCar, Simona De Silvestro became test driver for the Sauber Formula 1 team in 2014. In 2015 she made her Formula E debut competing in the final two races of the inaugural season, finishing 11th and 12th with Andretti Autosport.
The following season, she became the first woman ever to score points in Formula E when she achieved a 9th place finish for ANDRETTI at the Long Beach leg of the Championship.
Since 2016, De Silvestro has been competing in the Australian Supercars Championship.
“I’m delighted to make my return to Formula E as a test driver for Venturi Formula E Team and I’m grateful to Susie and Gildo for the opportunity”, said De Silvestro.
“Since competing in Season 2, I’ve kept a close eye on the Formula E championship and followed its development with interest. The arrival of the new Gen2 car represents a huge milestone for the series and I am very happy to be back in an active role at this exciting and important time”.
“We’re really looking forward to welcoming Simona on board, in her role as test driver she has an important part to play in our race preparations”, said Venturi Team Principal, Susie Wolff.
“Her background and experience will stand her in great stead in her new role and I know she will be a huge asset. Simona is a real team player and a driver I was keen to work with. She has a very positive attitude and no-nonsense approach to her work which will fit in well with the team.”
