Sato Takuma is the first ever Japanese driver to win the Indy 500. Sato finished first in one of the most prestigious auto races in the world, on May 28th at the Indianapolis Speedway.
He celebrated his win with a bottle of cold milk! As the decades-old tradition goes, the driver drinks and drenches himself in the milk. As for this Tokyo-native, he prefers 2 percent.
“It’s a fantastic feeling, not only my personal feeling but the whole team — Andretti Autosport — did a fantastic job,” Sato said. “It means a lot to the sponsor, it means a lot to the fans, it means a lot to Japan, too.”
