Sato looking forward to the Brickyard
27 June 2006 – Super Aguri driver Takuma Sato is looking forward to travel to Indianapolis. The Japanese driver won't forget his 2004 performance easily as he scored his first and only Formula 1 podium position during that race.
"Indy is a special place for me because I had the best race of my F1 career there in 2004 when I achieved my first podium finish," said Sato. "It is an historic place for motor racing and the fans are always very supportive. We could not race there last year, so for me the most recent memories from Indy are from 2004."
"The circuit is very unique as it uses the oval banking area with a long straight, but in contrast, the infield features many slow corners. I like the atmosphere at the two North American races, so I am very much looking forward to returning to Indy this week."
