With this sentence, Rubens Barrichello once again clarifies his passion for motorsport, especially for karting. The former Formula One driver, once again among the starters of the Rok Cup International Final, has not betrayed the expectations of fans, bringing home a bittersweet weekend but, as always, as a protagonist.

Sentiments the Brazilian’s, which can easily be deined as pure, as too his words. His behavior, also, with and without a helmet, bring about an almost perfect fusion of motorsport and family. The annual appointment with the international kermesse marked Rok is the crowning achievement of a karting season carried out at the highest levels and feature the sole desire to have fun and still feel part of the ight. A point that Barrichello wants to clarify. «I do all this because I enjoy it, I like it and I can share it with my children», this is the real “winning recipe” of Rubens Barrichello’s elixir of eternal youth and long-life.
