Happy birthday to Takuma Sato, who turns 33 today!

Sato’s last F1 appearance was in 2009 pre-season testing with Toro Rosso, in an unsuccessful bid to secure a race seat after he was left without a drive when Super Aguri collapsed in the first half of the 2008 season.

He was briefly in contention for a seat with Lotus, but did not secure the drive.

Here’s hoping a great birthday present arrives for Taku in the form of an F1 race seat!
