Former Formula 1 driver Rubens Barrichello absolutely loves his new life at the Indy Car circuit and is enjoying every moment of it, according to a recent interview. Speaking on his first race in Texas, United States of America, and the former Ferrari driver stated that apart from driving around the course in may, he had very little experience of what to expect from the track but did mention that he was learning things fast and like the other drivers, he is also very much pleased to be a part of it now.
When asked whether he had seen anything that comes close to this in his life before, the wily Brazilian said that it was at the Monza circuit, while stuck in traffic, he added with a smile. When asked how he would rate the season has gone for him so far, Rubens Barrichello was at his diplomatic best, making clear that although he did not have the fastest car and a rookie as a partner. But he did add that enjoyed his time behind the wheels so far and with Detroit coming next, he needs to learn the tricks quickly in order to make it count.
He admitted that his experience in Formula 1 counted for nothing here as Indy Car Racing and Formula 1 are worlds apart. He mentioned that he had been warned that he would feel sick when he got out of the car and Barrichello admits that although he didn’t feel sick, he felt the world moving a bit too fast for his liking.
Rubens Barrichello left Formula 1 after a decade in the sport last year and as Juan Pablo Montoya joined NASCAR, the Brazilian signed up with Indy Car Racing and although he is yet to make a mark, he is hopeful of doing so in the near future.
