Well, well, well, could it happen? That would be a surprise to me, being a huge fan of Rubens.

I hope he makes it because I just admire his sporting spirit so much. I don't care if he wins or not (though I obviously love it when he wins). He's a great driver to have around in F1.

He wants Schumi's record of distance and Grands Prix! Fair enough really.

Commentators on Speed were talking as if Van de Garde is all but signed to the other Caterham seat for next year.

Actually Rubens has the higher number of grand prixs. 322 starts to I think 307 after tomorrow.

It's about how many kilometers have they covered, not GP starts.

No way, stay out of F1! Barrichello can stay in Indycar, he has already reached his peak in F1 a long ago and even at his best he was never a top driver, an occasional GP winner when driving for a top team but never a championship challenger. If he drove for Caterham in 2013 he would just further humiliate himself in a backmarker team. Seriously, you should know when to quit man.

I bet Coulthard could buy them with his 50 million worth :D


I would have really liked to have seen Rubino in the Williams this year instead of Senna, but it was not to be

In my defense it's not a particularly interesting record. That's about the best I can offer.

Why?

Rubens has had a fantastic career and he does not need to prove anything else to anyone.

I want to see Van Der Garde, Rossi, or even Petrov to be there next season before Rubens.

he coudn't find enough money to stay on the grid for 2012, what makes you he will have enough cash for 2013?

having said that Caterham probably want experinced driver to replace Kovi and remembering how desperate Barichello was to stay on last year, he might even take the drive for free, just for a year or so. So who knows....

Number of covered kilometers during carrier and number of GP starts are two different categories.

I know distance and grand prix starts are two different things.

See the and, that separates the distance from the number of grand prixs, two different records.

I commented on the second one .

So much ado about an involuntary mistake made while writing aka lapsus.

I am a Rubens fan too but i don't want to see him drive a slow car anymore. Remember his Williams days? Or Honda 2007? It is painful to see him in such conditions. He'd better stay out of F1 unless he returns to at least a midfield team.

I disagree. For me Rubinho was clearly a top driver, at least in the 1993-1999 period, particularly in his Stewart GP days. On his Ferrari days he perhaps was the teammate that got the most close to Schumacher's pace. Top driver indeed, i say. But i do feel that he needed more consistency to be a WDC challenger.

In this i agree.

I liked Rubens before he joined Ferrari. Since than he didn't seem to deliver any more on the potential and promise he showed pretty early in his career. Now coming of age I think he should stop bothering with F1. I feel a comeback would only be good for the stats but not interesting for anyone else. I think Caterham should give a chance to a rookie (something they haven't done yet).

Oh God I hope not. I'd rather see Bruno or someone new like van der Garde in that seat.

One thing blatently clear about Rubens is that he races because he loves it, not to get points or give off a perception to anyone.

IMO Rubens is one of the nices guys F1 has lost, he was a great ambassador to the sport. For him it wasn't about winning - that was just a bonus.

He'd be ideal for helping a smaller team like caterham.

To be fair if Caterham want a driver in a development role they could do worse than Barrichello. 2013 will be a holding year until 2014 for them IMO. Using 2013 to learn as much for 2014 as possible and having an experianced driver could make all the difference.

That said Barrichello didn't do much for development at Williams if you believe rumours.

Even if he didn't get a race drive, it would be nice for him to still be in F1

Can you imagine if Barichello and Schui decided to but out HRT as a plaything :D

I bet they would attract more sponsorship then poor old HRT did when racing for real :lol:
Maybe offer occasional pay drives to JV or whoever coughed up some cash




You know, I began this post as a gag, but consider it for a moment. If the actual reason for it was as said, for retired drivers to play, Why not expand it into a genuine hospitality and 'F1 experience' style business?

It would be for the rich of course, but turn up and meet lots of F1 legends, learn to drive race cars from them. Not at a race of course, then get involved in racedays at real F1 races, and if you are good enough (and can pay enough to get the paperwork) maybe a practice session, or for lots of cash, even start a race.

If people will pay millions for a short space hop, who knows?
We saw rich stars do sports cars, it is only an extension of that.

dont know that it would be good for F1 from our point of view, but more money in the sport is always good as is the publicity

I don't know why Rubens would want to come back to F1. He's strong in Indycar, if he got a top team I don't doubt he'd be fighting for wins. In F1 he'd be an also-ran at best. If we were talking about someone like Franchitti or Power that have never been in F1 I could understand, but Rubens has been there and done that. If he just wants to enjoy his racing, stay in Indycar and challenge for wins and podiums rather than scrapping for the remote possibility of a point in an F1 backmarker.
