  1. According to this
    Barrichello has 301 involvements, 298 Grands Prix and 3 no starts.

    1. Yes, that’s right.

      Barrichello is not including Imola 1994, when he didn’t qualify or race, but is including Spa 1998, when he didn’t make the restart, and two races in 2004 when he stalled on the grid and didn’t start.

      1. I think he’s correct ED. after all if a driver doesn’t qualify he doesn’t line up. but as long as he’s on the grid, the race participation counts… so 300 (races) it is…

  2. Thanks for that – looking at that pie chart, it’s absolutely astounding to see the percentage he’s finished in the points. Rubens is one of the safest and most valuable pair of hands to have on the grid at this time, and you can see more and more as to why Williams got themselves a great purchase in Mr Barrichello.

  3. And I just wanted to mention what a heroic season he had in 1994, his second year in F1. To finish 6th is a tremendous feat.

    1. Even more heroic when you remember that he was in a coma from a crash during practice and his mentor died in that same race weekend…

  4. I remember on F1 97 on my playstation, I always used to play Rubens on the steward car, because of the marvelous 2nd place at Monaco. The small team (and I believe the car had a V8 when most of the field had a v10 if I’m not mistaken) did better than all the other ones. I nearly felt the same with Sutil but Raikonen ended it early, which I never forgave him for.
    Anyways, that is for me the defining Barrichello moment.

    1. No, they were using a Zetec-R V10, the other Cosworth teams had V8s. Still a cracking drive, though. If Schumacher hadn’t been able to get himself out of the Sainte Devote run-off Barrichello would have won…

      1. Thanks for the heads up. I have to look in the attic for the F1 97 game. I just loved it ( my brother was too young to play geoff Crammond’s GP2 and it wasn’t before98 that I had a computer powerful enough to switch to it).

  5. Amazing work, and very impressive set of data too. That and those Barrichello pictures before made me recall just how much he and Jordan were very busy getting to be a big team in the middle of the 90ties. It is also a big sore thumb sticking out just how bad those ’07 and ’08 Honda’s were.

    1. Fully agree there Bosyber! Impressive statistics, but maybe it’s a shame he went to Ferrari, just imagine what he might have done in a McLaren, or at Williams driving next to Montoya.
      Who knows, he might have even brought Toyota further ahead instead.

  6. Very cool to see the data in this way. It would be interesting to see other drivers, too.

    I think the charts clearly show that when Ruebens has a good car (Ferrari, Brawn) he is quite capable. He may be just lacking whatever intangible it takes to reach the highest level, but he is clearly capable of producing good results in a good car.

    I always wonder how some drivers would fare in similar circumstances. The discrepancy between the haves and have-nots in F1 can be pretty big, which makes comparison of driver talent tricky. Here, over the course of Ruebens’ career, I believe you have an indication of the difference the car makes.

  7. Very impressive that he’s finished nearly half of all his races in the points.

    Hockenheim 2000 is still the most emotional win ever.

  9. OK that’s brilliant stuff.

    The mechanical DNF percentage shows how long he has been in the sport. I don’t think 20%+ mechanical DNF would be expected today. The #1 Ferrari once went, what, more than 3 seasons years without a mech DNF. It’s also a bit disappointing that he only scored two 2nd place WDCs while at Ferrari.

    1. It took Hamilton til the last race of his third season to record his first mech DNF, so all the new drivers will be way below 20%

      Rubens DNFd at pretty much every race of the 97 season, most of which were mech…

      1. Yeah but the speed he’d show for those 17 laps….

        Wow… that Honda period was a bit of a downer…

    hope to see him for another few season in F1. as this was the 833th GP of all time, and Rubens participated in 300 of them, which means 36% of ALL races ever. stunning.

    1. 36% of all races is a crazy stat. However, it does make him sound like an under achiever. No WDCs and less wins than several drivers on the current grid.

      1. maybe an underachiever, but consider it, that he had to wait until his 8th season to drive a win-capable car, but during his period at Ferrari he didn’t have a real chance to win even a single gp, if his famous teammate was still in the title fight. so his only chance was last year i think, with Brawn, against Button, and although he performed much consistently in the 2nd half of the season, the 6 wins in 7 races from Button was unbeatable, an was too late for Rubens.

        and yes, there are drivers that won more gp than him, Massa has the same 11, and suffering from the teamorders too, Hamilton has 13, but in all his 4 seasons he had a car capable of winning at least races, but usually the title also. Alonso with 23 and Schumacher with 91 are another category i think :)

        underachiever or not, he is an extremely valuable driver for any team, and especially for a suffering, and currently only mid-status Williams.

  11. eu i hope he retires, time for some new youngsters… Hoping for a belgian driver altho that isn’t gonna be easy… small country not much sponsors…

  12. ok he is good driver, he had a deadly crash in imola 1994 but he always be second driver 2000 to 2005, he didnt a became a champion beacuse of schummy now 5 years later schummy could kill him in hungaroring wall hahaha f1 is so tragic comedy haha

  13. Take the two dog Honda years out of that last graph and you’ve got yourself a man who has not lost it.

  14. All i can really say is well done rubens

  15. can we just see how he’s done on the brazilian grand prix over the years?
