Rubens Barrichello will announce next week his Ferrari move.

Brazilian driver Barrichello will be the first Brazilian driver to race for the Italian marque regularly in the Formula One Championship. To race for Ferrari is the dream of every Brazilian driver and Barrichello isn't any different.

But does he know how much pressure he will have in racing for Ferrari?

Barrichello is now 27 years old and is in his seventh F-1 season. He is one of the most experienced Formula One drivers as well being one of the youngest.

Barrichello will be the second driver of the team (German driver Michael Schumacher is first driver) but will have the same equipment and the same testing days as Schumacher.

The salary of Rubens is unknown, but the comments of a team member says he will earn at least $5 million US per year
