Given a half decent car I reckon he could still do some damage, but not another williams!!! When Rubens was with them they had a rubish car and they knew it.

maybe williams benifitted from rubens "not" being there, too old and safe, look at jordan in 97, ralf and fisi, young and hungry, was a springboard to success for them, i "like" rubens, but i "love" williams, id easily accept all non finishes for that one victory in spain

He was an also ran at the best of times even when he had a decent car. How Rubens managed to stay in the top line for twenty years is beyond me, having only won a handful of races the whole time. I mean, there were champions that didn't survive that length of time, Damon Hill springs to mind as just one example. A nice guy, but there are better than him available. Maybe there should be an F1 seniors championship!

Please no......one of the biggest whingers in F1. Totally overrated. Keeps clinging to the fact that he had to let MS go past him on a single occasion, keeps forgetting about the 100 something beatings. Not good enough for a world title simply a journey man. Leave it for the young guys.

At Ferrari he complained that Michael was favoured, at Honda the car wasn't good enough. At Brawn Jenson was favoured, at Williams it was the car. He left F1 for IndyCar because he thought he would have a fair chance in a spec series (also he wanted to get paid). Now having flopped miserably, Rubens claims the Indy team isn't good enough and he feels he deserves another shot at F1. No Rubens, it is time to call it quits.

well, if de la rosa can land a plum drive, ther should be a chance for a driver who was able to beat him!

seriously, reubens was a handicap to williams, as he was not helping to develop the car. now , with sam michael and reubens gone, look at the improvement!

@ranger. Well most of that was true!

Also no mean feat to feature in top ten in Indycar, some seasoned drivers over there miss out on a top 20 place for years.

Rubins has been at the front end for most of his career, put him in a good car and always a top 5 possible, eh Fellipe?
