Interview with Takuma Sato - VIDEO

Former F1 driver Takuma Sato talks about his racing career, focusing on his time in the IZOD IndyCar Series where he currently drives for AJ Foyt Racing.
Takuma Sato came agonisingly close to winning the 2012 Indianapolis 500, but finally the former F1 driver clinched his first win in the IZOD IndyCar Series earlier this year at Long Beach. In the process he became the first-ever Japanese driver to win in the US open wheel series' 103-year history.

In this video interview, the AJ Foyt Racing driver talks about what it felt like to miss out on the Indy 500, how much the victory at Long Beach meant to him - and what he hopes for from the rest of the 2013 season.
