Will Rubens Barrichello make it to Australia in time? Williams driver Rubens Barrichello is in a bit of a pickle after finding himself stranded at Buenos Aires’ international airport, his departure point to get to Australia for the Grand Prix in just a few days’ time!

It is believed that all three of the city’s main airports have shut down by the National Civil Aviation Agency due to a major meltdown in the airports’ communication systems, and it’s not known when they will be able to reopen.

“Argentina airport has closed it down,” a seemingly frantic Barrichello wrote on his Twitter feed. “No news and I need to get to Australia. Any ideas?”

At this stage, no, but we’ll keep our readers posted on his progress!
