Reports in recent days quoted the Brazilian veteran as sounding frustrated with Grove based Williams, as Germans Adrian Sutil and Nico Hulkenberg were linked with his seat for 2012.

"I saw some news saying that I wanted to stop racing," the 39-year-old told his million Twitter followers on Saturday. "(It) makes me laugh really.

"All I want is to carry on racing."

Barrichello, the most experienced driver in F1 history, insisted he wants to stay at Williams.

"(We are) working doubly hard to have a good car for next year. Problems do exist and we are here to solve them. Williams need me as much as I need them," he said.

"And to be honest I told Williams that if they offered me a two year contract I would sign right now."
