Takuma Sato celebrated for the first time last month after the race when he joined the legendary AJ Foyt team at IndyCar, and now even leads the overall scoring charts among racers. The 36-year-old, who is a Formula One driver for Jordan, BAR / Honda and Super Aguri, does not want to dedicate himself to Formula One again due to good results: “I am 100% focused on Indy. Otherwise, everything was great in Formula One, but I think I have to finish the job here. Namely, I have to say that I am very satisfied here and that is why I look at IndyCar in the long run. "
Let us recall that the career of a Formula One racer for Takuma ended when Super Aguri closed its doors in 2008. The following year, he came very close to a place in the Toro Rosso team, but lost to Sebastien Bourdais. After 90 starts for the grand prize, the loss of a place on the Toro Rosso team for Sata was a shock, despite the fact that he was very close to Lotus (now Caterham) for 2010. Sato says all this: “When Super Aguri withdrew for financial reasons, it was a sad moment for everyone. From my side, there were some outstanding deals left in Formula One, which made me want to go back.
I had a good chance at Toro Ross at first, but they didn’t decide for me after the winter testing. Despite this shock, I still had a small chance, but unfortunately it didn't work out. I have to say that racing in Formula One is really great, but it’s not the only car championship. I've always been attracted to Indy and that's why I took this opportunity, which I don't regret. "
