Rubens Barrichello on Thursday revealed he has scheduled talks about his future with Williams at the Nurburgring this weekend.
Team boss Frank Williams recently described the veteran Brazilian as "superb", while chairman Adam Parr indicated it is very likely the 39-year-old will be re-signed alongside Pastor Maldonado.
"We've just emailed one another saying we would continue the conversation over here, so I'm looking forward to that," Barrichello told reporters ahead of the German Grand Prix.
"Of course, it (the new contract) will be on the same basis as the current one, so I don't think it will take very long," he is quoted by Sky Sports, adding that the talks should be "straightforward".
