In a story at P-F1 citing F1 Magazine as the source, there are rumors that Honda has had it with Rubens undistinguished performance as he was outpaced by Jenson. In fact, they are considering moving him to Super Aguri for 2008. They even quote Honda engineers as saying that he should retire because he was scared at the last race. Ouch!
I think this is harsh criticism for a guy who is capable of winning Grands Prix. Have they ever thought, just for a second, that it may have something to do with the pile of crap they fielded this year and if you are measuring Rubens by his performance to Jenson…maybe, just maybe, Jenson has been there longer and has learned to drive a piece of crap better than Rubens who came from Ferrari where he drove a real car? Suffer it Honda; you suck and blaming it on Rubens is weak by anyone’s measure. I hope you do move Rubens to Super Aguri; at least he’ll beat your honda works team in the points. Sad from a “professional organization” like Honda.
