1st anniversary - celebrating with Rubens Barrichello
As The Flying Lap marks its first anniversary, we are delighted to welcome as our guest Rubens Barrichello, live from Orlando, Florida. A gentleman, a passionate racer and above all a remarkable Grand Prix driver, Rubens is as hungry today as he was when he began with karts and then Formula Vauxhall Lotus in the late 1980s early 90s. He scored his first pole and podium finish when driving for Jordan in 1994; he finished a brilliant second at Monaco for Stewart in 1997 - and he scored his first Grand Prix win in a gloriously skilful display for Ferrari at Hockenheim in 2000. He has won three Italian Grands Prix at Monza - two for Ferrari, one for Brawn - and he scored a sensational British Grand Prix victory at Silvestone for Ferrari in 2003. In addition, Rubens is the driver who gave Michael Schumacher a win in Austria, 2002 - and who then won the US Grand Prix that same year in compensation. In total, Rubens has won 11 F1 races, finished on the podium 68 times, taken 14 poles, set 17 fastest laps and scored 658 points. More than that, Rubens Goncalves Barrichello has started 322 Grands Prix - (excluding the four weekends in which he never got to race). That makes him the most experienced F1 driver in the history of the sport (ahead of Michael Schumacher, 285, and Riccardo Patrese, 256) - and the second-highest points finisher of all time.
