    Rubens is an awesome driver, admired by everyone here who's into motorsports in some way. Not the case with everyone else in our country, racing under Senna's shadow at the time...

    It'll be great to see him racing at Le Mans, best of luck!

    Odd question, but how good is Barrichello outside of the F1 bubble? I know he dabbled momentarily in Indy car but not long enough to become proficient - is he legitimately still a good driver, doing Brazilian touring cars or what not?

    2014 Stock Car - champion
    2015 Rotax Kart Max Challenge - 4th place in the DD2 category
    2016 Stock Car - runner up
    2016 CIK-FIA World KZ Championship - 24th place
    Last year in the 24 hours of Daytona he was a little bit slower than the Taylor brothers, around 1s, but was his first time on that car.
    In the test this last weekend he did 3.33 as his best lap around Le Mans.

    Di Grassi is the best Brazilian driver nowadays.

    Barrichello lost a lot of time trying to stay relevant in those Williams days. He could easily had a go in a good LMP1 car or more time and better opportunities in Indy. But it's a cultural thing here, and Brazilian fans and drivers hardly look outside of F1.

    I'll watch his performance closely and can't wait to know his excuses.
