Sep.23 (GMM) Rubens Barrichello is not planning to celebrate his 300th grand prix this weekend.

The Brazilian officially celebrated the unprecedented milestone recently at Spa-Francorchamps, despite some statisticians pointing out that he didn’t actually start two grands prix due to pre-race technical problems during his time at Ferrari.

According to those tallies, it is actually Singapore that will be 38-year-old Barrichello’s 300th race start.

“We had the same problem with the 257th grand prix,” said the Williams driver on Thursday, referring to his surpassing of Riccardo Patrese’s race-start record.

“There are various ways to count. I had my 300th grand prix in Spa. That’s enough,” he is quoted by Auto Motor und Sport.

“I’m not going to celebrate again. But if someone brings a cake, then that’s ok,” laughed Barrichello.
