Rubens Barrichello's current contract ends at the end of this season, but the Brazilian has made it clear that he wants to continue racing.

Corriere dello Sport recently quoted Barrichello saying, "I don't know if I will continue next year in these conditions".

But this weekend Barrichello posted on his twitter account to straighten the record, "I saw some news saying that I wanted to stop racing. 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 r 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 2 years contract that I would sign right now."
