Barrichello and Schumacher Continue Their War Of Words

Rubens Barrichello has continued his major war of words with Michael Schumacher after the Brazilian won the international champions kart challenge last weekend.

The Brazilian, who was Schumacher’s team mate between 2000 and 2005, continued from where he had left off, singing derogratory songs about the champion and accusing Ferrari of being against him, by saying that he felt Schumacher was the one who had turned this into a war.

“It seemed like Schumacher thought he was in a war. Maybe he forgot that he is in Brazil now.” Barrichello said about Schumacher’s driving in the kart challenge.

Schumacher responded by saying; “He is like that.  He complains whether he is the winner or the loser, its just the way he is”

I think maybe Rubens should grow up here.  I dont know if it is some kind of eleborate scheme to sell more books or whether he and Schumacher geuinly dislike each other, but it taints a very successful period in Ferrari’s timeline.  I’m guessing that the honest truth is, Rubens just wasn’t as good as Schumacher.

  1. I know you mentioned the international champions kart challenge, but very few people are talking about the BMW world final which is taking place over in Mexico City this weekend.

    Some of the most awesome young drivers are competing for a F1 BMW test drive. Should be a cracker for those young guys.

  2. I didn’t know that championship was taking place at all, but it sounds rather good!

    Thank you for making myself and the readers aware.
