F1 » Barrichello Williams contract extension 'a formality'

Williams star Rubens Barrichello will reach a landmark of 300 grand prix starts later this season, but all the signs suggest the most experienced driver in F1 history will not be hanging up his helmet anytime soon...

I certainly wouldn't have thought he'd reach 300 when I was watching that airborne Jordan smack the barriers at Imola. Maybe the sheer luck of surviving that conditioned him into being a 'nice bloke' in F1 terms. Doubt he'll ever win again but it'd be nice to see him and Williams sticking their noses in wher not wanted by the big teams.

I would love to see Rubens stay at Williams as both he and the team seem happy.

I think that together they can bring the team back to their winning ways

A little off topic but I would not be surprised to see some engines detonate at this track as well as see the Mclaren and Force India machines do well. That track is beautiful if you like high speeds. "Me thinks" it is going to be one of the better races. Cant wait!!

PS Nervous about the RBR's Renault

He's been around for far too long and has never done anything spectacular. Time to hang up the helmet me thinks and let someone who is faster have a go.

Ed - I wouldn't hold your hope too high for engine blow-ups. The sadly castrated circuit is no longer the engine test it used to be.

@andrew, Its really not fair to include his days at Ferrari. The guy had to pull over for Shumi! He did pretty good last year as well. I know he had an advantage in the Brawn but..... He can drive.

PS Shumi did the right thing by handing him the first place trophy though!! :-o :)
