Former F1 driver Rubens Barrichello has admitted that his debut at Le Mans this month is a milestone in his career and he is still actively involved in racing.
The Brazilian competed in Formula 1 for almost two decades, setting a record 323 of the Grand Prix.
Barrichello left Formula 1 at the end of the 2011 season, but left the motor racing: he has participated in IndyCar, Brazilian championship Stoke-cars, as well as in the race “24 hours of Daytona”.
45-year-old driver at the end of last year confirmed his intention to speak in the marathon in Le Mans this year, together with team Racing Team Nederland in the LMP2 class in the crew with Jan Lammers and van Freedom Airdam.
“Every racer thinks about this race,’ said Barrichello after yesterday’s tests. I am very glad to be here. I hope we will be able to achieve high results”.
Barrichello added that his passion for Motorsport has been simmering, and now he’s hungry to win as ever: “I’ve always loved what you do, and this is important. When I had his 19th season in Formula 1, people said I need to stop, I have so long advocated.
But I will only stop when you understand that you no longer like racing.
Now I’m chasing than when I was in Formula 1: speak at Stoke-on cars and maps in me is still strong competitive spirit. So I am pleased to speak in Le Mans, much as I love motor racing”.
