How many times did you win in Formula 1?

Those were 19 years of many stories in Formula 1. I ran 326 Gps and won 11 times; stepped up the podium 68 times; 658 points and 14 Pole Positions

Rubens Barrichello of Stock Car is closer the family and the brazilian fans, is it different from driving 19 seasons in Formula 1?

I believe so. The Rubens that today drives at Stock Car has been shaping himself for long. The final stage of my career in Formula 1, after leaving Ferrari, can be deemed a breaking point. I prefer myself now than in previous years. It’s not that I didn’t like it, but it’s priceless to know that you can manage the problem and know that’s something that will make you better in the future. This experience of being able to face a problem with a smile and liking yourself better to love what you need; staying cool, not spending energy with what you don’t need, this has undoubtedly made me a better person. It’s a natural growth, but today I feel I’m more ready and realized. My family and the Brazilian fans certainly helped me a lot too
