How you know you aren't getting a call back...

"I can definitely say that Mr Bruno Senna is not going to race for HRT. One hundred percent not." - HRT team principal Colin Kolles to Reuters

The Brazilian's Formula One career appeared to have stalled on Friday when the HRT team ruled him out of the running for their second race seat this season.

The quotable F1: Rubens Barrichello

24.07.2010 Hockenheim, Germany - Rubens Barrichello (BRA), AT&T Williams - Formula1 World Championship Round 11 - German Grand Prix 2010 at Hockenheimring Baden-W??rttemberg +++ Copyright: Stange / RACE-PRESS.com


"It's not about cuddling and love, it's about getting the work done and getting everyone to hear what you're doing. It's a good marriage to be honest, with you. That's what I'm in love with! It's been one of the best times of my career. Like I've said before, all the teams that have employed me have used me well enough for their benefit, but not as well as Williams have used me. They hear me fully, and they actually act. They may have a sense that 'this is bullshit,' but let's try it anyway.' And then they try, and see some benefit."

- Rubens Barrichello to AUTOSPORT
