A fine way to begin pre-season testing with Takuma Sato with his new team - AJ Foyt racing. Sato became the fastest at the end of day 1 going under the :52 second mark with a :51.947 and barely out pacing Scott Dixon in the Ganassi car by .070. Will Power was 3rd by .206. Dario Franchitti and Justin Wilson round up the top 5.

This also marks the return of AJ Allmendinger to open-wheel racing. In the end, 'Dinger posted the 12th best time out of 13 drivers. They may expect Andretti Autosport to hit the track today.

A tale of 2 Sebastians.

Graham Rahal: See this hand. I have the golden touch. Which means I get to eat my Golden Grahams.

AJ: Help - I'm stuck!!

AJ : I just raided Graham's RV. Care for some Golden Grahams cereal?

Helio: Let me get the chocolate.

Helio: Just smile for her.

AJ: If you are asking for smores, Forget it. Just look at the "Lethal Marshmallow".

She ate the whole bag.

Helio: That is the beauty of it.

Taku has been improving every season. He's been getting closer and closer to victories, his qualifying is becoming much more consistent, much cleaner overtakes, and not to mention the equipment with Rahal is some of the best in the field... Wish the best to Takuma.

Love the picture of Helio. Probably one of the greatest people I've ever come across to meet. A great guy he is.

Sato has always been fast, lack of pace isnt the reason for his lack of victories...its the silly mistakes in the crunch laps.

They don't usually run with another tyre lying down flat on top of the right rear either.
