Barrichello concedes that F1 return is highly unlikely 21 October, 2013 Rubens Barrichello Rubens Barrichello has admitted that a return to Formula 1 is highly unlikely and he is set to stay in Brazil’s stock car championship next year. Amid reports he had put together a sponsorship package for 2014, the former Ferrari and Williams driver had admitted he was keen to return to Formula 1 after a two-year absence. But Monisha Kaltenborn then strongly denied that Barrichello, 41, could be paired with inexperienced Russian rookie Sergey Sirotkin at Sauber next season. Barrichello is now hinting he will definitely stay in stock cars in 2014. “With the team and the sponsors we are thinking of a renewal,” he told Jovem Pan radio at the Curitiba race at the weekend. “That is the nearest future: a renewal in stock car,” Barrichello added. He admitted, however, that he often misses racing in Formula 1, after the longest grand prix career in the sport’s history. “But I am also a very happy person,” said Barrichello. “Now, when I finish the race, I go home at 5pm to my family. My quality of life has changed for the better, so what you lose on one hand, you gain on the other.” (GMM) Subbed by AJN.
