Rubens Barrichello has become the most experienced driver in the history of Formula One this season but for him that is a double-edged sword.

Just as with David Coulthard, any driver of a certain age begins to face questions about his future.

Whether ambitious Honda keep him on for 2009 remains an open question, however.
