RB soon to retire...

Post by darwin dali »

It's in the news, RB is publicly thinking about retirement by saying he won't break Patrese's 256 races record (RB has currently 225 starts under his belt, MS has 241). Wanna bet who's going to retire first - RB or MS?

Well i dont think Rubens will have to worry about breaking the record as youve pointed out. And i dont see Mike retiring at the end of this year even if he wins the title! he wants 100 wins to his name and if possible 10 WDC.

That would make sense, Rubens hasn't shown any brilliance in F1 recently. He seldom outperforms his teammate Jenson, and seems to find it hard to control anything without a Ferrari badge on - including his career.

I'd like to see him return to his little farm in Brazil, milk some cows and setup an orchard. I like the guy, everyone likes him but his glory days of coming second are over.
