Rubens Barrichello’s 257 Livery

Rubens Barrichello’s 257 Livery

To celebrate Rubens Barrichello’s 257th race start at the Turkish Grand Prix, Honda have modified the livery that would usually adorn the skin of his RA108. Barrichello also has a one-off helmet design that fits with the logos and colours on the car. 257 races means that the previous record of 256 falls, much to the disappointment of Riccardo Patrese. Patrese set the record immediately prior to retiring in 1993 after the Australian Grand Prix, and has been helping Barrichello celebrate the new record in the past week.

And Barrichello has a nice glitzy splash-screen up on his website: Rubens Barrichello’s Official Site. Although, when I say ‘nice’ I’m just being polite. It’s a bit bling…
