Williams have confirmed Rubens Barrichello will remain at the team in 2011.

Frank Williams said:

We recruited Rubens to Williams knowing that he would bring technical expertise, experience and passion.

He has delivered everything we could have hoped for this season and we are delighted to confirm that he will drive for us again in 2011.

It will be Barrichello’s 19th season in Formula 1, breaking Graham Hill’s record for most active seasons in Formula 1.

Barrichello broke the record for most race starts in 2008. He became the first driver to start 300 races this year.

He also confirmed that Nico H???lkenberg will not be driving for the team in 2011 but indicated he would be happy to have the driver in his team again:

I would like to thank Nico for his hard work this year, and before that in preparing himself for Formula One. We are very proud to have supported him as he secured the Formula 3 and GP2 titles and during his debut in Formula One.

At Williams we have for many years tried to bring new talent into the sport, and we are convinced that Nico will go on to great things. We wish him well and hope that our paths will cross again in the future.
