Not worried about 2012 F1 – Barrichello



Sept.08 – The F1 veteran Rubens Barrichello is confident he will be in Formula 1 next season, despite the holdup to secure a new contract with the Williams team. Barrichello is still in talks with Williams over a deal for 2012, but rumor suggests other challenger for the seat is Adrian Sutil, Bruno Senna and Giedo van der Garde, who would arrive at the team with financial backing.

“No, it is not going to happen,” Barrichello told Autosport, when asked if he was worried about not being in F1 next year. “I feel that in a way that I have to put everything into contest as well. I have to see how competitive everything is.

“A year like this, to be working for another year like this on my 20th year, I need something better. I feel the team is doing better with the engine change and the personnel change and everything, so I can see a good light at the end of the tunnel but I just want to continue because people want me to and they know I can win. Other than that, I will stay home and take care of the kids and winning my internet games. I already won this weekend my first virtual race, which is great!”

The Brazilian confesses he would have liked to have a contract for next year already, and says he is working hard to finalise something.

“We are talking day by day. We just need to see. I wish we had done a deal already but it is taking a little longer, but so far there is nothing else to add, I am just working very hard to see what we can do as soon as possible. He said.

“It is very flat in a way. I think that the team is taking everything into perspective; they know what I can offer. There is nothing else I can report, really. I am still waiting. It depends on what we have made as a team for here – the rear wing is that, and if it doesn’t work it is the wing, but if it works that is the wing too, so we are very hopeful we made it quite well but we will wait and see for tomorrow. If you walk down the pit lane you see wings that are this big and wings that are small – it is very difficult to know.”
