Brawn GP – Rubens reflects on winning a seat from Senna

Througout the close season speculation grew that Rubens was facing 09 without a drive. This was largely due to the prospect of Bruno Senna testing the then Honda Racing car. Luckily for Rubens the world of F1 was rocked by the global economic crisis and with Honda's announcement they were withdrawing even Jenson could have been without a drive. In steps Ross Brawn an the management buy out with this the decision is made that Rubens for 09 would be the best candidate for a team needing maximum setup ability. Ruben comments:
"I'm just lucky that at this time F1 has changed a little bit," he admitted.
"Because of the lack of testing, it is going to more experienced drivers again but I wish Senna all the very best," added the 36-year-old after the first day of a four-day test session at the Circuit de Catalunya on Monday.
"We're good friends, and although we haven't talked for the past couple of months when we've been fighting for a position, it has nothing to do with us.
"It was sheer coincidence that we ended up at the same place at the same time.
"For someone who has three or four years of experience, he has done fantastically well and he has a future in Formula One.
"I haven't seen anyone just yet with the capability of running for three years in cars, and all of a sudden getting to Formula One and doing so well like he did in testing."

About Me

I have been an F1 fan from a very early age, however in my very early years I didn't really support a team just loved the racing. Since the BAR years I have been supporting this team through it's highs and lows. I'm confident under Ross Brawn's control the team will go from strength to strength and hopefully Jenson and Rubens can find themselves in a competitive car once more.
