The Brazilian Felipe Massa has advised his fellow citizen Rubens Barrichello to retire from F1, If Massa can’t see F1 veteran Barrichello finding for sponsors to race following all he had achieved in F1
But Rubens Barrichello has recently says that he is not facing his home race as his last F1 race, as Brazilian is still expecting he will safe a drive for 2012.
“I did give him an advice: to quit,” the Brazilian told TotalRace in an interview. “To me, Barrichello had an incredible career in F1: the driver who competed in most GPs and with many wins under his belt. It is a career most drivers would dream to have. He raced for the best teams in F1. I haven’t advise him to quit because I feel he is old or something like that. But today in F1 there are 12 teams, and five or six are asking for money to give a seat. I think this is absurd.
“My opinion, which I told him, is that I can’t see Barrichello searching for sponsors to race after all he had achieved in F1.
“I told him to quit and to use this last race to have a proper ending. But I know he will do what he thinks is the best for him and, as a friend, I will support him and hoping for the best for him.”
