Barrichello not worrying about his future

Rubens Barrichello insists he does not go into this weekend's Brazilian Grand Prix worried about his Formula 1 future, as he feels satisfied with and grateful for his grand prix career no matter what happens in 2012.

The veteran seems set to lose his Williams seat next year, and may face a battle to find a new drive - meaning his 326th F1 appearance may be his last in a racing capacity.But rather than worrying about what 2012 may hold, Barrichello said he was feeling thankful for the 19 years he had already enjoyed in F1 - pointing out that other drivers facing uncertain futures, such as Bruno Senna, had only managed a fraction of that time at the top level so far.I think it would be sad to be worried about the future.I had 19 lovely seasons.As much as I wish Bruno all the success in the future, he is in his second year and having to work hard to stay here, and you imagine.

I have been doing this for such a long time and been wanted here for such a long time, so I feel good.Barrichello produced one of his best drives of the year in Abu Dhabi a fortnight ago to come through from the back of the grid to 12th, a performance the Brazilian said he enjoyed even if he doubted it would make much difference to his career prospects.
