De Silvestro in crash

Swiss driver Simona De Silvestro burned both hands during a crash at an Indy 500 practice Thursday, threatening her participation in qualifying Saturday and Sunday. HVM Racing owner Keith Wiggins said there’s an outside chance the team would bring in another driver to get De Silvestro’s backup car qualified, then bring her back to start the May 29 race at the back of the field. The 22-year-old has second-degree burns on her right hand and superficial burns on her left. Wiggins expected De Silvestro to leave the hospital Thursday. “She’s OK,” Wiggins said. “She’s shaken up a bit.” De Silvestro lost control of her car and it slammed into a wall, went airborne and flipped several times before coming to a rest upside down and in flames. – AP
