Barrichello says come back to F1 is ultimate goal

Published

F1 veteran Rubens Barrichello says that he is keenly anticipating his IndyCar test but also acknowledge that a come back to F1 remains his ultimate goal.

Rubens Barrichello has been swapped by Brazilian Bruno Senna at Williams this season and he will test an IndyCar at Sebring this week. But, it was quickly confirmed that Barrichello would test an IndyCar. He is scheduled to run at Sebring on Monday and Tuesday for KV Racing Technology, who already runs another Brazilian, Tony Kanaan.

“I’ve always wanted to test an IndyCar. I love speed so it’s natural to want to try this, Barrichello explained to O Estado de S.Paulo newspaper. As I have no contract with anyone there is nothing to stop me from testing it.

“I’m going into this test with my mind wide open. If I leave the car with the passion I have always had as a driver then why not? I love racing. There are no more places open. But if the opportunity arises, the dream of competing in my 20th season in Formula 1 is still very much alive. You never know,” Barrichello said.

“Sometimes things change for all sorts of reasons and someone calls up your speed and experience.

“Kimi Raikkonen and Michael Schumacher came back, so there’s no reason I could not as well. It’s true,” Barrichello said of his promise. “It is an important issue to be resolved. But before I think about it I must first know the car. Inside me, it is not clear what to do.”
