We wonder what Frei thinks of Sato kissing Indy 500 Festival Princess Shivani Bajpai?

Sato was sponsored by Ruoff Home Mortgage which is based in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. Does that make it any better for Frei?

Of note, Sato drivers for team Andretti. Did Frei ever once care about Mario Andretti, who was born in Italy and also an enemy of the U.S. during WWII, racing in the Indy 500 on Memorial Day weekend?
