Barrichello wants ‘better car’ in 2007

Honda’s Rubens Barrichello has vowed to help the Japanese team build a ‘better car’ for the 2007 season.

Teammate Jenson Button’s win in Hungary aside, the Brackley based squad underachieved in 2006 but have vowed to launch another assault for the title next year.

Honda finished 24 points behind third placed constructor McLaren this season.

Barrichello said: “I have to think about the future and make the car work better for me because this year was so hard.”

The 34-year-old struggled initially with the Honda’s brakes and traction control in 2006 following six seasons alongside Michael Schumacher at Ferrari.

But he insisted: “I have faith in Honda.”

Barrichello said in Sao Paulo last week that he would happily trade in the more comfortable environment within the team for a faster Honda car.

“I’m not under pressure, just relaxed. (But) I would like to have that pressure back and have the car to win,” he explained.
