Rubens Barrichello, Spa-Francorchamps, 2010

Williams honoured Rubens Barrichello today as the Brazilian driver prepares to start his 300th Grand Prix this weekend. He is the first driver to achieve a triple century of Grand Prix starts.

Barrichello was given a special medal by Bernie Ecclestone and a commemorative bike from his team – and burst into tears after they showed a video commemorating his career to date.

See below for pictures of Barrichello’s celebrations and more from today at Spa.
