With his gathered experience and solid performances, Rubens joined Ferrari in 2000, where he partnered up with the renowned Michael Schumacher. During his years at Ferrari, Barrichello was able to get multiple podiums and dedicated his first win to Ayrton Senna. Throughout his career, Barrichello gathered impressive victories and performance, imposing himself as one of the most experienced F1 driver of all time.
