De Silvestro retains Andretti seat for NOLA
7 April 2015 – Andretti Autosport has confirmed that Simona de Silvestro will remain with the squad for this weekend's IndyCar round at the NOLA Motorsports Park in Louisiana.
De Silvestro, who spent last year as Sauber's affiliated driver in Formula 1, returned to IndyCar for the first round of the campaign in a one-off deal at St. Petersburg and finished in 18th position.
But she will now remain with the team for a further round this weekend, ahead of her presence on the grid at next month's Indianapolis 500.
"It's great to get another shot in the car and improve on everything we learned in St. Petersburg," she said.
"I'm really looking forward to being able to work with everyone again and hopefully have a better race!
"I'm really thankful for all that Michael [Andretti] and everyone at Andretti Autosport have been doing to make all of this happen."
