Barrichello wants to return to Formula 1

Barrichello wants to return to Formula 1Rio de Janeiro, Oct 30 - Brazilian driver Rubens Barrichello has expressed his desire to return to Formula 1, saying he is motivated and prepared for a new challenge.

The 40-year-old said Monday he could still compete at the top level despite finishing a disappointing 12th in his debut IndyCar season with KV Racing this year, reports Xinhua.

"I have to be careful about what I say because people will say that (a Formula 1 comeback) is all I talk about," said Barrichello.

"Everybody needs to have dreams and the desire to improve every day. For that reason I cannot say that I will not return to Formula 1," he said.

Barrichello said he was in talks with KV Racing about continuing with the IndyCar manufacturer next season.

The Brazilian made a record 322 Grand Prix starts during his 19-year Formula 1 career, finishing runner-up in the drivers' championship with Ferrari in 2002 and 2004. (IANS)
