Barrichello Digging Indy Car Seat-time

Listened to Trackside last night and probably enjoyed the interview with ‘TK “Follow-your-Schnoz” Kanaan the most, as Curt Cavin asked him ‘bout some other Brazilian, his brother... Oh, you mean the old F1 guy ‘Rubino, right? Hya! As Cavin tried finding out who was the fastest of the Brazilians? Whale I’m not gonna tell you except for there were three Brazilians there; the Dancing Guy, (FOOL) the OLD F1 Guy and me with the really B-I-G Nose...

TK then touched on how they’re really close friends and how they’ve worked out the prospects of racing against each other and whether it’d have any effects upon that?

Look, we’re both practical jokers - you know I’m the B-I-G Star on the team, have the biggest locker, etc. Yet I showed up for Day-1 of the test Monday morning and Barrichello’s name was taped onto my locker with all of his gear inside it!

While the age old adage ‘bout how IndyCarz a whole different animal was once again noted, with ‘Rubino being pleasantly surprised when he and TK were having dinner and first Will Power dropped by, then ‘HULIO and on ‘N on as soon there were six rival drivers hanging out together... Or how Kanaan pulled up and parked his car in front of the Penske hauler and they joked about him moving it as the Floridian sunshine beaming off of the polished chrome transporter would probably bake the finish right off of his shiny black automobile!

As the Indy Car world seems to be a little less intense then thee Pinnacle ‘O Motorsports, nee Formula 1 - where the first objective is to OBLITERATE your teammate by taking NO prisoners...

Thus it was interesting to hear Tony say that ‘Rubino was having so much FUN driving the new Dallara DW12 that he’d be staying on for a third day of testing, albeit they didn’t know if it was gonna be just a half-day or what?

Cavin asked how the deal came about and TK responded that he’d originally asked Rubens to come over and test the car to help out the team due to his vast knowledge of developing F1 racecars for 19-years, to which Barrichello originally said he couldn’t do since he was still a Formula 1 driver. Then when it was announced that Bruno Senna was taking his Williams F1 seat Kanaan took a picture of his new Dallara and tweeted ‘Rubino saying the seats still open...

Kanaan also commented that whilst its totally in Barrichello’s hands - he’s most likely not going to have a role in Formula 1 since he doesn’t want to work that hard chasing sponsorship for the HRT F1 seat, the sole remaining drive in Formula One. Noting how Rubens doesn’t want to work that hard to end up where the Hispania will be on the grid this year...

And Brant James of Sports Illustrated who got bumped by Kanaan phoning in from Sebring noted how he’d specifically asked Rubens about his claim of promising his wife to never run Ovals - with the Brazilian saying it’d been worked out... And hey, anyway’s they don’t have all that many Ovals this years anyways, right? Hya!

As I for ‘Juan think it’d be absolutely GURR-RRRRRRR-REAT!!! To have ‘Rubino as part of the Indy Car fold this upcoming season...
