Webber: Rubens record out of reach

Webber: Rubens record out of reach

Mark Webber has ruled out chasing Rubens Barrichello's record number of race starts but that doesn't mean he's out at the end of this year.

Webber hit the 200 mark in Bahrain last Sunday, however, that is a long way off what Barrichello achieved as the former Ferrari man reached 322 before he was dropped by Williams.

And although Webber has yet to decide whether he will continue in F1 next season, the Red Bull racer says he won't be around long enough to challenge Barrichello's record.

"I think 17 years in Formula One, I think that record will stay for a long time," the Aussie told Servus TV.

"It's a special, special career; very, very long. I think that it's going to be very, unlikely that I will challenge Rubens' grand prix entries from my side.

"[However] I think that the performance is still good at the moment, that's the main thing. As long as I'm hungry, have good drive and enjoy the work, that's the important thing.

"I think towards the summer we will make a plan, like I always do. I have never made a plan in my future seasons in April before so I'm probably not going to start now.

"But I'm still feeling very hungry, still have some very good results inside me so that's the most important thing and I'll focus on the next race like I've always done."
