Son of Satoru, who worked his way through the ranks, deliberately choosing to race with Toyota cars or Toyota backed series so to distinguish his career in his own right, rather than be accused of using his dad's name (a Honda linked man) to advance his career. He made his Formula 1 debut in late 2007. Stayed on until 2009, but lost his seat for 2010 after a poor year. Now back in Japan, racing in Super Formula and Super GT again and is still part of Toyota's World Endurance Championship challenge, winning for them at Le Mans in 2018.
