McKenzie....The is just a joke, right. Rubins is
quite happy with the team at Williams and
really gets two thumbs up from Sir Frank and
yes he is doing a super job at Williams.
Nick is the man for the job, W/de la Rose a
good second.
McKenzie this rant was good for a laugh.
Mucho Tacos....

Of course they wouldn't! Any why would Rubens want to move when he is already top dog and unlikely to be challenged that hard by his current team mate this season. With Williams there is a reasonable chance he could get another season after this but with Renault no chance and no guarantee of even completing the season. So even if Williams could do with the money they'd never get Baricello to agree to it - and even if they did who would they get in to replace him - Heidfeld?. If Heidfeld delivers then he is the obvious cheapest choice and leaves the door open for Kubica at any stage.

Barrichello has turned out to be just another F1 journeyman and bitter with it. To give him a car that is potentially a winner would be sacrolidge considering the other options open to Renault.
