"I'm really happy for Honda. They worked really hard to get us here," team owner Michael Andretti said. "I know how big this news is going to be tomorrow when they wake up in Japan. It's going to be huge. I'm really happy for them, that we were able to give them a win with our Japanese driver here."
"It's tough because me and John are close," former IndyCar driver and current team owner Michael Andretti said Thursday in Indianapolis. "It was devastating for the whole family when they got the news and on top of that it's very frustrating because it could have been prevented. If he'd gone a year ago, we wouldn't be here."
