Rubens Barichello is brazilian and was thought to take over the brazilian F1 campaign after the demise of Aryton Senna, Barichello showed great promise early in his career but did not live up to his name, until the 1999 season, where with the Steward Ford team he has shown that he is a talented driver  which is why  Ferrari has chosen him to drive alongside Schumacher for  2000 with equal status and no clause in his contract unlike the one Eddie Irvine had with Ferrari.Rubens so far has had one pole position in his career with no wins so far. Rubens almost won his 1st race in 1999 in the french GP where he led for most of the race, he demonstrated his skill while driving in the rain where all the cars were aquaplanning.He currently resides in Cambridge, UK.
