May 7 (GMM) Rubens Barrichello is still refusing to give up on his Formula One career.

After a record-setting 19 consecutive seasons on the grid, the 39-year-old Brazilian lost his Williams race seat for 2012 and switched to the premier American open-wheeler series, Indycar.

"I'm enjoying it," insisted Barrichello to O Estado de S.Paulo newspaper.

"I have been welcomed and the feeling is a much more open one.

"But the fact that I keep active and am competing is, for me, still a way to be seen and to attract the eye of Formula One.

"For all that I did in F1, I would be able to go back there," added the former Ferrari and Honda driver.
