Barrichello: Ferrari are lacking very little

Ferrari is missing “very little” in order to charge for the world championship in 2020accoding to Maranello favourite Rubens Barrichello, who was Michael Schumacher’s teammate in the team’s all-conquering period between 2000 and 2005.

Brazil, a Sao Paulo local, attended the Interlagos race at the weekend and said of the 2019 season: “It was a hard-fought championship and much nicer than the last three or four years.”

As for Ferrari’s push to finally beat Mercedes, the 47-year-old told La Gazzetta dello Sport: “I would say that Ferrari is missing nothing, or very, very little. There have been victories, pole positions, many points. To tell you the truth, they are lacking very little.”

On a personal note, Barrichello – who was a Ferrari driver for five years, winning nine grands prix in Red said of his former team, “When I was wearing white [of Brawn GP] after I won at Monza in 2009 the tifosi treated me as if I were still dressed in red. That memory will always remain in my heart, Ferrari will always remain in my heart.”
