VIDEO: Simona de Silvestro’s test at Fiorano Circuit

Apr 27, 2014, 12:45 PM EST

Former IndyCar driver Simona de Silvestro has taken a big step towards lining up on the F1 grid in 2015 after completing an extensive test with Sauber at Fiorano in Italy over the weekend.

The Swiss driver got behind the wheel of the 2012 C31 car and put in over 180 laps across the two days at Ferrari’s private test track. She will next get a chance to test in Valencia at the end of June.

The team was able to film part of her test by putting a camera on her helmet. You can watch this insight into the Fiorano Circuit above.

Had she been using the team’s current car at an official test session, Simona would have already completed the necessary mileage for her F1 superlicense. However, she is expected to get a chance to do so later on in the year.

    Indycar has to be such a disappointment after driving an F1 car. I could feel the g-forces just by watching the speeds she went thru the turns at. Best of luck to Simona. It’s nice for her to get a chance in F1. She looks like she’s up for the challenge.
