Nov.20 (GMM) Simona de Silvestro has split with her manager.

After the 25-year-old female Swiss driver conducted several tests for Sauber this year, it emerged last month that her road to formula one had suddenly ended.

The former Indycar driver’s programme “will not continue for financial reasons”, a spokesman for Sauber had said.

Speed Week now reports that de Silvestro has this week split with her manager Imran Safiulla, who according to Swiss reports earlier this year was also backing her financially.

“I will now consider the next steps in peace regarding the options for my racing career,” de Silvestro is quoted as saying.
