Rubens Barrichello’s desire to return to the F1 grid appears to have ended his days as a roving commentator.
We reported on Thursday that the most experienced driver in the history of the sport had “concluded” his commentary contract with Brazil’s TV Globo. Brazil’s UOL Esporte is now claiming Barrichello, 42, fell out with the broadcaster due to “relationship and contract” problems, and also because he allegedly used his role to “offer his services to F1 teams”.

Brazil had to spend millions on upgrading the ageing Interlagos circuit or risk losing its place on the formula one calendar.

The biggest change ahead of next month’s Brazilian grand prix, set to be the penultimate round of the 2014 world championship, is a full resurfacing of the asphalt.
