Sao Paulo: If driver support counted, Rubens Barrichello wouldn't have a problem finding a Formula One team next season.
The veteran Brazilian is yet to secure a deal to race in F1 in 2012 but is getting plenty of backing from fellow drivers who don't want to see him retiring just yet.
"It would be a real shame to lose Rubens for the future, because he belongs here," said Sebastian Vettel, who has won his second consecutive F1 title. "He has been here for a long time. Pretty crazy to imagine yourself to be around that long."
