MILWAUKEE - The burns on Simona De Silvestro's hands are getting better. Restoring her confidence is another matter.
The 22-year-old Swiss earned the respect of her fellow IndyCar drivers by rallying from a frightening crash in a practice session at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to qualify for the Indy 500 and start the race.
De Silvestro said during a break in testing at the Milwaukee Mile this week that the crash made her think about quitting. Even with Indy in her rearview mirror, she admits she's still a little shaken up and that her mindset isn't yet back to where it was before the accident.
