By on

As Rubens Barrichello will leave the Brawn GP Team at the end of the season for the AT&T Williams F1 Team, Team Principal Ross Brawn took the time to thank the Brazilian for his contribution to the success of the Brackely-based outfit.

Ross Brawn, Team Principal, Brawn GP: "We are very pleased for Rubens that he will be driving in Formula One once again next year. Rubens was with our team for four years and we regard him as a highly experienced and talented driver whose contribution to the team over that period was significant.

“2009 was a very special season for Brawn GP and I am extremely proud of the spirit in which our drivers Rubens and Jenson fought for the Drivers Championship. Rubens contributed hugely to our success in the Constructors Championship with two great victories in Valencia and Monza along with numerous podiums and he was a pleasure to work with.

“We wish Rubens the very best with his new team and thank him for his contribution to Brawn GP this year."
