Barrichello attends the Sao Paulo Indy 300
Rubens Barrichello
Brazil soccer coach Mano Menezes and Formula 1 driver Rubens Barrichello got a taste of the IndyCar Series on Saturday in Sao Paulo.

The coach rode with Al Unser Jr. as a passenger on a two-seat IndyCar vehicle through the circuit set up for Sunday's Sao Paulo 300.

"We came here to enjoy the Indy a little and it's been a lot of fun," Menezes said.

Brazilian F1 driver Barrichello was at the Anhembi street track to accompany his racing friends.

"I feel lucky that I have a weekend off from Formula 1 and that I'm able to come here to see so many of my friends," the Williams driver said.

Barrichello said he was envious watching the drivers going through the streets of Sao Paulo and wouldn't mind getting a lap in himself if he had the chance.

"It must be really special to drive here," he said. "I'll put my helmet on and drive If I see a car laying around somewhere."
