Barrichello eager to keep racing

Rubens Barrichello aims to keep racing despite Williams decision
Rubens Barrichello insists he isn't giving up on his racing career despite the apparent end of his time on the F1 grid.

Barrichello had hoped to extend his career into a 20th F1 season in 2012 only for Williams to confirm earlier this week that his place was to be taken by Bruno Senna.

Writing on Twitter shortly after the announcement was made, Barrichello insisted that the 'future is wide open', leading to speculation about what his future plans may be.

In a further message to fans, Barrichello expanded on his initial remarks by insisting that he fully intended to keep on racing somewhere in future.

“When I said that things were open [it] is because I still have lot's of speed on me,” he wrote. “Just like an old friend said: Racing is in my blood.”

Barrichello's future plans remain unclear although he is reported to have ruled out any chance of going to compete in IndyCar.

He is probably faster than half the field, even if he is "old" there are a lot of drivers who should be leaving before him, to me speed is more important than being young.
