Questioning whether or not Takuma Sato was wrongfully eliminated by Dario Franchitti’s defense of the lead on the final lap of today’s Indianapolis 500. Sato attempted to make his pass in the first turn, but did not have enough room to make his move.
The No. 15 Mi-Jack Honda pulled up alongside Franchitti’s No. 50 Target Honda, but suddenly Sato’s blue and white Dallara DW12 began to break loose. His wheels had hit the white paint just short of the edge of the pavement, causing him to lose traction in the same way that Ed Carpenter and Marco Andretti had to cause the previous two cautions.
Sato smacked the outside wall. Race over. Franchitti wins under caution.
