Barrichello announcement in March

Rubens Barrichello will announce next month where his future lies after hinting it could be in the IndyCar series.

After failing to sign a new deal with Williams1, the Brazilian found himself left without a Formula One drive for this year's Championship forcing him to look elsewhere.

A close friend of IndyCar racer Tony Kanaan, Barrichello participated in a test with KV Racing IndyCar at Sebring and has hinted that he could race in the series this season.

"It would have to be at the beginning of March," the 39-year-old told GPUpdate.net.

"I went to the test with no expectations, really. I really wanted to test the car, have fun and give the team the best ideas for the future.

"We had a good thing going on and at the end of the test they asked me if I wanted to take part in the Championship.

"I always enjoy being with my family but, honestly, I am eager to get back in a racing car; I like the team and they are on their way up."
