2009 VALENCIA: BARRICHELLO EMOTIONAL 10-th WIN, BRAZIL 100-th


Rubens Barrichello took an emotional tenth grand prix victory and his first in any car other than a Ferrari with a fighting performance for Brawn GP in the European Grand Prix at Valencia.

The 37-year-old Brazilian drove aggressively and with consistent pressure to pass a McLaren in each of his two stops and drive home relatively un-pressured to score the team's sixth win of the season.
