- Associated Press - Wednesday, January 25, 2012

A person familiar with the plan tells The Associated Press that Formula One driver Rubens Barichello will test an IndyCar next week for KV Racing.

The person told the AP that Barichello will spend two days at Sebring International Raceway in a DW12 for KV Racing. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because Barichello has not made any plans beyond the test session.

Barichello has spent the last 19 seasons in Formula One, but was replaced last week at Williams by Bruno Senna. He has no seat lined up in F1 for the 2012 season.

Barichello is an 11-time winner in F1. He has 68 podium finishes, but none last season. The Brazilian notched a pair of ninth-place finishes last season, and ended the year with only four points.
