A New Beginning: Interview with Takuma Sato

After the steep fall from grace in 2005, Takuma Sato's roller coaster Formula One career now seems to be on the up, as the Japanese revels in leading new team Super Aguri off the back of the grid. Jonathan Noble talks to the revitalised Honda driver

When your car appears pegged to the back of the field, and there is sometimes two seconds per lap difference between you and the car in front - let alone the bigger gap to front of the grid - it would be all to easy to just accept your fate.

Resigned to your fate, aware that no matter what you did it wasn't going to improve your position, you could just fly around the world, enjoy the trappings that come with being a Formula One driver and, come Sunday night, shrug your shoulders and tell your mechanics that there was not much more you could have done. Better luck next time, and all that.
