Simona de Silvestro topped the final practice session ahead of qualifying for this weekend’s IndyCar race at Barber.
March 28th, 2013
Tony Kanaan believes their strong start to the IndyCar season is just what he and team-mate Simona de Silvestro needed after a poor 2012 campaign. KV endured a disappointing season in 2012, with Kanaan finishing as the team’s highest-placed driver in ninth. Former team-mates Rubens Barrichello and EJ Viso ended up 12th and 20th respectively
March 24th, 2013
James Hinchcliffe took the first IndyCar win of his career in the season-opening race in St Petersburg. The Canadian was a frontrunner throughout the afternoon and proved especially adept on restarts, claiming second from Will Power early in the race, retaking second from Power again on a subsequent restart, and then taking the lead from Helio Castroneves on a late restart when the Penske driver went wide at the first corner.
March 23rd, 2013

October 27th, 2012
Simona de Silvestro will join Tony Kanaan at KV Racing Technology for the 2013 IndyCar Series.
October 26th, 2012
IndyCar teams KV Racing Technology and HVM are considering forming an alliance next year in a deal that would bring Tony Kanaan and Simona de Silvestro together as team-mates. If the partnership goes ahead, it would likely allow de Silvestro access to Chevrolet engines after having been the only driver to spend the entire 2012 season using Lotus units. It will also mean that she has a team-mate to work with for the first time, with HVM having been a single-car team since she joined in 2010.
July 21st, 2012
Will Power and Oriol Servia have become the fourth and fifth drivers to be issued with grid penalties for engine changes ahead of this weekend’s IndyCar race at Edmonton. Penske confirmed after qualifying that it had opted to change Power’s engine despite it not having reached its full mileage, while Dreyer & Reinbold announced Servia’s engine change shortly afterwards. Power had qualified seventh, while Servia was 20th.
July 8th, 2012
Scott Dixon topped the times in the final IndyCar warm-up session in Toronto. The Ganassi driver’s best lap of 59.9117s came in the final minutes of the session, and a late red flag – triggered by HVM’s Simona de Silvestro hitting a tyre that had come loose from a barrier in Turn 2 and crashing into the wall – prevented anyone else from being able to better his time. Simon Pagenaud (Schmidt Hamilton) was closest to Dixon, finishing up just 0.0073s off Dixon’s time, with AJ Foyt’s Mike Conway and Andretti’s Ryan Hunter-Reay just behind him.

Lotus is still working to add a second full-time entry to its IndyCar line-up to help accelerate its rate of development and close the gap to engine rivals Chevrolet and Honda. Currently, the manufacturer only supplies the single HVM entry of Simona de Silvestro, although a second Indianapolis 500-only entry was added for Jean Alesi by Indy Lights team Fan Force United. Both cars were black-flagged after a handful of laps for being outside 105 per cent of the leaders’ pace.

Simona de Silvestro will return to action with HVM in this weekend’s Baltimore Grand Prix – having been forced to sit out the last race at Sonoma.

June 19th, 2011
Simona de Silvestro has been cleared to take part in today’s Milwaukee IndyCar race following her heavy crash in Saturday’s qualifying session. The HVM driver had a double impact with the wall after spinning at Turn 4 on her qualifying run.
May 22nd, 2011
Simona de Silvestro admitted she had second thoughts about getting back in the car for Indianapolis 500 qualifying after her ferocious practice crash, but was glad she made the decision to continue after qualifying 24th. The HVM driver sustained burns to her hands when a suspension failure sent her into a fiery, aerial accident on Thursday. She was cleared to return to the track yesterday and managed to qualify the team’s lower-spec back-up car in 24th
May 21st, 2011
Simona de Silvestro has been cleared to drive in the initial practice session at Indianapolis this morning in order to assess whether her injuries have healed enough to allow her to participate in qualifying today.

May 20th, 2011
Simona de Silvestro will find out later today if she can get medical clearance to return to the track for Indianapolis 500 practice and qualifying after her violent crash on Thursday.
