Rubens Barrichello this week received the prestigious Brazilian 'Golden Helmet' F1 motor racing award at a ceremony in Sao Paulo.

The local veteran, who finished the 2009 world championship third with Brawn, shared the honours with his countryman Felipe Massa, who was presented with a special golden replica of his helmet damaged in his Hungarian qualifying crash earlier this year.

"I have the real helmet back in my house, and this (prize) is a gift that will be in my heart for the rest of my life," new father Massa, 28, is quoted as saying by Globo.
