Richard, Agreed I don't believe a word of it a bit like everytime F1 goes to Canada JV's name gets linked to a return.

The very thought of Rubens getting an F1 drive when talents like Kobayashi and Kovalainen look like getting pushed out next season is just wrong.

I have nothing against Rubens, but he already and largely got his chances in the so called "pinnacle of motorsport". I find his wish as purely egoistic and pointless as he couldn't challenge for the title. Now it's time for the new generation of talented drivers to fill the available spots and I also hope the paying drivers situation (Petrov, Senna, Gutierez etc...) will end soon. I think Kobayashi deserves to stay in the sport, but once again his future is unfortunately linked to the sponsorship he needs to get and not linked to his driving skills.

Rubens is a great guy, but he's had his time in F1.. It's time for the younger drivers to get their chance. I also want to mention the disappointment at F1 news sites not running a story about Vitaly's 11th place which guarantee's Caterhams 10th pos in construction's. Vitaly deserves a reward for doing such an important job for the team.

Ruebens is still a world class driver and a great guy, but finishing 12th with 0 wins in the IndyCar championship doesn't mean he should be back in F1 does it?

Several IndyCar drivers would do well in F1 if given a chance (Ryan Hunter-Teay, Will Power, Scot Dixon...) but not Ruebens again.

I'd say just be glad you have a seat in IndyCar and see if you can make it to the podium next season.

I think rubens can move the team forward in term of development.. He probably done better than senna in the Williams this season.. money is totally outweighed true talent..

Its all about the money drivers can bring to the table these days, talent comes second. In the improved Williams, Rubens would have easily outscored crasher Maldonaldo this year just by staying on track!
And whose experience and feedback helped them to build that better car? Im betting it wasnt Maldonaldo....
He would certainly be an asset at Caterham.
