De Silvestro debuted in INDYCAR in 2010: for the last three years, Simon had no companions, as the only representative of the team HVM. The best result of 24-year-old Swiss has 19 overall in its first season. In 2012, de Silvestro was the last of those who came out at the start of each stage of INDYCAR.
