Rubens Barrichello has responded to doubts about his future at Williams.
The Brazilian is out of contract at the end of this season, and has yet to conclude a deal with his current team. However tonight he used Twitter to deny media suggestions that he intends to retire.
“I saw some news saying that I wanted to stop racing,” he wrote. “Makes me laugh really. All I want is to carry on racing.
“Working double hard to have a good car for next year. Problems do exist and we are here to solve them. Williams need me as much as I need them.
“And to be honest I told Williams that if they offered me a two years contract that I would sign right now.”
