I know how you feel Rubens, your F1 career has lasted longer than I wished!

Now that he's desparate to get back in a Williams this year I wonder if he regrets all the whining he did about the team last year? Blah blah blah.

One of the friendliest drivers in the paddock.
Odd thing is that I would not mind to see more young guns on the grid but not at the cost of Rubinho.

Too bad most will remember him as Schumi's nr2 however he did some great things in the Jordan and Stewart.

Sad to see Williams decline to this level, with the old point systems they would have had 0 points.

They should stick with Barrichello, none of the others mentioned would do a better job. He is still fast, he just hasn't had the car to prove it. In 2009 he was faster than Jenson on numerous occations but he wasn't as lucky.

Does he think putting his head on Chopping-board is taking longer than he wish?
Ruben has been crying for last 6 months about his future in Formula One.

Let give a chance to young talent driver.

Barrichello remains the best option for Williams in terms of competitive edge, experience and getting the most out of the car. The fire burns strong within him to continue racing and he should be given the opportunity to do so with Williams this season.

No disrespect to Barrichello or Schumacher, but each has had their time. they should bow out gracefully and look back on great careers and feel satisfied. There are a lot of great young racers that should be in F1 except only for these guy taking up the limited seats. It's time to go!

whoever gets the williams seat, it is wrong to keep them in abeyance for so long. other viable opportunities could have been missed. a number of years ago,it was required that the entrants name, their cars and drivers before the end of november. i dont know why this requirement vanished, but it should be re applied.
