Barrichello: I'll be in F1 next season

Barrichello: I'll be in F1 next season

Rubens Barrichello says he will be in Formula One next season and expects a better for the Williams team.

Barrichello is out of contract at the end of this season and rumours have suggested it could be his last in F1 as Williams seek a paying driver to replace him.

However, the Brazilian, F1's most experienced driver, is adamant he'll remain in F1 and with Williams

Asked by Autosport if he was worried about not being in F1 next year, he said: "No, it is not going to happen.

"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!"

As for a new deal with Williams, Barrichello says it in the pipeline but is taking a "little longer" than he had hoped.

"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.

"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."
