Rubens Barrichello says he will never forget his victory at the European Grand Prix, after an emotional day for the Brazilian. Barrichello scored his first victory of the season and the first with a team other than Ferrari, ending a win drought that lasted five seasons.
The emotional Brazilian also moved back into second place in the championship standings, 18 points behind teammate Jenson Button, seventh today.
Today's was Barrichello 10th win in an F1 career that began in 1993.
"It has been fantastic, a weekend that I will never forget especially because after five years you don't forget how to do it," said Barrichello after winning again 81 races later.
"It was tough, in the race every time you push, push, push and although you are pushing like hell there are things that go through your mind.
"You want to do it for yourself, your country, your family, there was a lot going through my mind. The car was perfect and I have to thank the team for that.
"I wish this moment could be forever... I'll be here for the whole of Monday too so stay there!"
The Brawn driver, 37, put on a superb second stint during the race to beat world champion Lewis Hamilton.
"It was fantastic, I had to push all the way through," he said of the middle stint. "We had different tyres through the race, there as some question about which was faster but for sure mine was very consistent. I was able to produce my times every lap.
"It has been a fantastic day, a hard one to push all the way through, but I am so delighted and I want to thank all those who supported me."
Barrichello becomes the fifth grand prix winner this season.
