I will remain actively involved in the sport as a consultant to Red Bull Racing focusing on testing and development of the cars. I have an open mind as to whether or not I will compete again in the future, in some other form of motorsport, so I am definitely not hanging up my helmet!

37 I think. He's been in F1 for well over ten years though, so a good run.

Damn him! He has to stay - he's like the guy I've constantly backed in the back of my mind since I started watching F1. Mind you, if he's been in F1 for over 10 years, I have a funny feeling I would've been watching his first F1 races! :p:

He'll be missed on the F1 grid, that's for sure.

He knows I love him really.

Shame, but expected. I wonder if Barrichello has voiced his intentions - he's been in the sport roughly the same amount of time/longer.

Yeah I really wouldn't be surprised if Reubens retired this year too, especially with them making the fuss over him and his most race starts earlier in the season.

it was kinda obvious, ish, that he was going to retire when he was being so criptic at monaco, so in that respect, im hardly surprised.

I think Reubun will retire too, and be replaced with Davidson, that would be mint, or if the rumours are to go by, alonso :-/

I'd imagine it would be Davidson considering he was testing for them. Can't see Alonso going there tbh when he could stay at Renault (or the crazy rumoured move to ferrari).

Lol i know alonso wont go there, i cant help thinking Honda might want a Japenese driver though, they have in the past, so Sato might get a drive agian, and frankly, we cant afford to keep rebuilding cars.

Oh well.

I dunno, Sato only seemed to still be in F1 with Super Aguri after he left BAR/Honda because they were under pressure to keep a japanese driver, can't see them having him back :p:

It'll be sad to see DC go, but I think he's making the right decision - like Schumacher, it's better to retire on a "high", than when you're career's reached a total stagnation, or even worse, by being forced to retire through an injury from a crash.

If the BBC chose DC over Brundle, I doubt Brundle would allow that, since he's DC's manager :p:
