Takuma Sato wins 101st Indianapolis 500

But Indianapolis Motor Speedway is a place so special to the Andretti family that its team could not be counted out even after Alonso and Ryan Hunter-Reay exited with engine failures. He was ultimately classified 24th. "One lap you put on the lead there, it was already a nice feeling". The skipped the Monaco Grand Prix held on the same day to take part in the race.

Sato became the first Japanese and first Asian to win the self-proclaimed "Greatest Spectacle in Racing", at the Brickyard on Sunday and became Japan's newest sports hero.

"I should have known better and I regret it", Frei said.

One can't help but watch this and think about Brazilian announcers calling F1 legend Ayrton Senna's victories with the same fervor. When he attempted a last-lap pass, Sato lost control of his auto, crashed and Dario Franchitti went on to his third victory in "The Greatest Spectacle In Racing". "Extremely happy for the final result".

Michael is the only driver among the top 21 Indianapolis 500 lap leaders never to have won at least once.

An overwhelmed Sato managed to verbalize "Unbelievable feeling", after he exited his Andretti Autosport auto, a team the newly minted champ joined this season.

"Hopefully, the crowd enjoyed it", Sato said.

"Once I hit the wall, I tried to turn right to keep the vehicle into the wall so I would stay out of harm's way, but unfortunately the way the auto was damaged, I came back across and I feel really bad for collecting Scott", Howard said. The organisation is unbelievable. "We definitely had some very well-performing engines in today's race".

"I was pointing in the right direction into (Turn) One", said Sato, who was congratulated in victory lane by Franchitti. He said Sunday's win was a dream come true. "It's handsome. I dreamed of something like this since I was 12".

Dale Coyne Racing's Ed Jones was the highest places rookie at the chequered flag in third, with Alonso, Zach Veach and Jack Harvey failing to finish.

An ESPN article pointed out that most Indy fans were expecting the likes of Scott Dixon taking the win, or perhaps, Alexander Rossi doing a repeat.
