I love the contrast between the Spanish and Japanese commentators on that clip. I have to admit, I was yelling for it to happen as well.

I think perhaps that given Honda's "less than stellar performance last year"....re: telling Super Aguri what front wing they could NOT run......it's only a matter of time before the need to assemble/pay for a team just to field Taku comes to an end.

Truly the end of an era....I'll be able to tell my son that "I remember when I got to see Takuma Sato drive in F1"

I think it's time to field Sato in a real car again! It is fun to watch him when he is on top of the game, even if that only happens about as often as Ralf is!

I wonder what it is with the Japanese teams, neither Honda nor Toyota seem to be able to field a top tier car. Sato gets points for being brave, perhaps pushing an inferior car to and often past the limit. Odd too that Super Aguri seems to have a quicker car than Honda.

Still, having a Japanese driver in F1 has got to be good for Honda in the home market.
