A girl back in Formula 1?

This is a major step towards me achieving a life-long dream and I’m so happy to have the opportunity to take this step with such a great team.” said Simona de Sivestro. This year she is taking the next step in her career by joining a preparation programme with the Sauber F1 Team, with the goal to gain her super licence and prepare for a race seat in Formula One for 2015.

The Sauber F1 Team is a team with a legacy and the only Swiss team in Formula One, which I think makes this even more exciting. I can’t thank Monisha Kaltenborn and Peter Sauber enough for their support and belief in my abilities and for giving me this chance. I’m thrilled to have this extremely unique platform on which to prepare myself to take on the challenge.

The programme will include on track testing, simulator training, as well as mental and physical preparation.
