Sauber boss Monisha Kaltenborn has confirmed that Rubens Barrichello is a candidate for a 2014 seat.
Th 41-year-old reportedly has some sponsorship, and has indicated his desire to return to the cockpit.
“I always have to give you the same answer on that, we will announce in due course,” said Kaltenborn when asked about his chances. “There are a couple of options out there. We know what he has, his experience, we know that he’d like to come back, so let’s see.”
However she added that there was no chance that Barrichello might drive in the 2013 season closing race in Brazil, as has been suggested.
“I don’t see any possibility there, because we have no reason to change our two drivers for that race.”
