Simona De Silvestro Starts Season Strong

“I think we really push each other every session. I think the team gets better that way. I think that’s going to make us pretty strong the whole season.”

“Simona brought a lot of spark and light into the team. I enjoy working with her. I have no problem teaching her whatever I can,” Kanaan said. “But I like to see this young girl that wants to do well, because that’s her opportunity. That obviously pushes me to my limit. I’m going to admit that she’s extremely fast. I said that even before she was my teammate, so I’m not trying to make any excuses.

“For me it’s good. I learned my entire career,” Kanaan continued. “I had hard teammates. I had (Alex) Zanardi as a teammate, Dario (Franchitti) as a teammate, (Ryan) Hunter-Reay as a teammate. Those are people that are extremely good. It’s good to get beat sometimes. That’s how we learn.”
