Simona De Silvestro will start her fifth Indianapolis 500 race on Sunday, May 24. With Pippa Mann, she is one of two women competing in a field of 33 drivers. Can she win the world’s biggest race and do what a handful of other women at the Brickyard – including Janet Guthrie, Lyn St. James, Sarah Fisher and Danica Patrick—couldn’t? I sat down with the affable 26-year-old from Thun, Switzerland, to find out what she thinks. Her nickname is The Iron Maiden, but I found her incredibly charming and funny.
