In a joint interview between Felipe Massa and Rubens Barrichello for SporTV, Rubens Barrichello has stated that the Brazilian Grand Prix weekend has featured a few surprises one of which includes a 2010 Brawn GP offer.

"I have opportunities within Brawn, and outside as well"

He goes on to mention that there are still negotiations that must be conducted and that his offer for 2010 is already a good deal different from his 2009 deal. In elaborating about his 2009 deal he stated that he was actually only contracted for four races and that his salary was directly correlated to the amount of points he scored this season with a cap on 25 points.

Rubens later tackles the subject of retirement and states that he still does not feel the desire to do so but divulged that he has thought about retiring and joining the Brazilian Stock Car series which he has been a long time fan of.
