Rubinho, don't go there!

They will sack you in the middle of the season with all kind of reasons, except you can WIN races regularly in that CRAPPY car.

Look at heidfeld, podium and regular points is not enough!

Rubens has had long enough.

Fair enough if he wants to join the B teams to help them develop the car but he's had his time, great racer and character but he's just keeping younger drivers who deserve a crack at it out of a semi competitive car.

Also unless he's bringing in sponsorship money which I don't think he is (I think he expects to gets paid to drive by the team) then he's got no chance.

Too many false deadlines from a feeble management. All well and good giving RK more time again, he should have been given a more realistic deadline in any case. By putting pressure on him it may well damage his full recovery. The management should just confirm a reasonable time to enable RK to get back up to speed and put no deadline on it.
If he comes back too soon it might put him back futher.
Maybe RK would be better off at another (Williams, Force India etc ?) team.
If RK comes back too soon to LR Boolies1hitter will expect top line finishes straight off, or sack him for not being fastest from day one.

Just retire please Rubens, how much superannuation can one man need? This also applies to Felipe, Jarno, Heiki and Tonio. All youre doing is keeping young hopefuls out of a race seat. If you have had an opportunity in a top team and not made it then admit youre not good enough and use your experience in the design/ development team. Race seats in F1 should be for the obviously abnornally gifted like Seb, Lewis, Fernando and Robert etc.

GOD spared your life once.
You are wealthy.

Stay away from the sport now, enjoy your family, have a long life.

You dont need to come back and test your star.
