Rubens Barrichello on being pranked by Senna and almost signing for McLaren
This week’s guest on F1’s official podcast – Beyond The Grid, supported by Bose - is F1’s original iron man – a veteran of 19 seasons in the top class of racing and a record 322 Grand Prix starts...
Over the course of that career, Rubens Barrichello experienced every emotion under the sun: from the despair of being injured and losing hero and countryman Ayrton Senna on the same weekend in 1994; he experienced the euphoria of winning races for Ferrari and Brawn, and also the disappointment of being forced to give up race wins for a team mate.
In an illuminating conversation with host Tom Clarkson, the affable Brazilian speaks about all of the above, as well as relaying incredible stories about the time Senna pranked him as a rookie in 1993, the time he ‘married’ Michael Schumacher on a night out, the time he almost signed for McLaren for 2010, and much more!
