He has an awful record racing in Brazil it seems so I don’t blame him for being pessimistic.
This looks like a classic case of expectations management to me. There’ll be a big crowd there this weekend and those expecting him to win are likely to be disappointed.
But Barrichello’s on an upward trajectory and he could pull off a good result. A lot will come down to how well he does with the fuel, which has been a key weakness so far.
I’m from Sao Paulo… and we’re expecting rain on Sunday, honestly, Sao Paulo’s weather is always difficult to predict… … Barrichello could be again on TOP 10 but I think it will be difficult for him to fight for victory .. .. I’m also looking forward to see what Bia Figueiredo could show driving for a better team like Andretti…
Would love to see Rubens do well in front of his loyal fans. Sure, winning is proably out of the question, but he is capable of a good result there, particularly if it rains. That talent he has in the wet will not disappear, particularly since the IndyCars look like they would need a deft touch when it gets slippery.
However, his record in Brazil is one of appauling bad luck. Hopefully he’ll get a break now, even if it’s not in F1.
