Yes, wonderful news indeed! Rubens is a class act. F1's loss is IndyCar's gain. Jaro needs a ride too. Bring him on. It's going to be very interesting. Can't wait for the season to start!

@ MeymacTony, not so far? It's a 9+ hour flight from Tampa to Rio!

Let's get all former F1 guys to have a second career in IndyCar. Trulli, Coulthard, Villeneuve, Wurz, hell let's even get Mika to give it a shot!

I'll be watching Indycar with interest this year, which I wouldn't have said a few weeks ago.

This is fantastic and hopefully many more top F1 drivers will follow Rubens. With only a small number of cars capable of winning I do wonder why so many drivers choose to waste their time running around in a crap car with no realistic chance of winning when they could instead move to Indycar.

I am sure Rubens made his mind up pretty quick when he realised he could once again fight for wins when previously the most he could dream of would have been a point or two! He won't miss F1!

BTW I find the comments here rather funny...

No one moaning and making anti-Sky comments which is strange as Indycar is exclusive on Sky!

Its ok as long as he has no serious accident. IndyCar is totally different to F1 and Im sure 'Rubino' knows what he is letting himself in for. I wish him all the best even if I thought his wife was totally against IndyCar!

Rubens will be running with some fairly iffy characters , big on bottle but lacking talent and driving ability, It was somebody elses stupidity that robbed us of Dan , not of his own making.Lets hope Indy is monitored with more intelligence this year and cut back on the street carnival element
