With the new Renault engine for Williams in 2012 we may see the real Rubens emerge again. It can't be inspiring to drag an underperforming car around the track all year, the new team setup might work in his favour. And if he is out done by his team mate, then let him go.

Williams seems to have really lost their way in recent years, I know about the financial situation they found themselves in but to me it always seemed that they were always the most difficult of teams to work for (the stronger they were the more difficult they were to work for). Next year they really have a good chance of producing a reasonable good car (which I hope will be the case) and in my opinion they would be better off keeping RB with them at least for another year.

Jose, a nice place to spend Christmas at, some fifteen years ago I worked for about nine months offshore Senegal on a semi submersible who's chief engineer lived on a sailing boat in St Croix Virgin Islands, a nice bloke indeed.
Have a merry Christmas out there.

He deserves to remain in Williams next year,but the guy he should replace is Maldonado. Guys much better than him like Petrov, Sutil, Buemi and Alguersuari have all gone out of work, so why is Maldonado still in this game then? He will drag Williams down

The team have big money problems Rubens doesn't come up with any money then he won't be in the team should of retired with respect and a great send off with the fans. Also I think he doesnt know when to let go

@Nanbawan: You may feel old mate but Rubens isn't. Honestly, Rubens is the best option for Williams. I'd give offer him 1+1 year contract. He's already two years with the team. The posistives were always more than the negatives in Rubinho's case. Cheers!

So the choice is between
(a) a 39 yr old who has on a world record 6 occasions been in a championship winning car without, er, actually winning the championship himself
or (b) a 28 yr old who has never been outqualified over a season & who arguably was the only man to outperform his car in the final standings last year
Not tough, is it, really?
Rubens needs to recognise that his F1 career is now over and retire with a bit of dignity. He won't get the Williams seat, and frankly nor should he.
