Sato logs miles to get to Sao Paulo

A.J. Foyt Racing's Takuma Sato flew 12,900 air miles (20,760km) this week to get to Brazil from Tokyo, where he went following his win at Long Beach. He won't return to Japan until summer.

Sato attended a victory press conference in his home country and said becoming the first Japanese driver to win an Indy car race has raised the profile of the series in Japan.

But now, Sato has a new goal: "The championship is my target now that I have won a race," he said. "The series is so competitive and consistency is the key. Every weekend you need to be best of the best."
