Barrichello 'cool' on Button's momentum

Rubens Barrichello says he is staying cool despite team-mate Jenson Button's momentum continuing at the Turkish Grand Prix last weekend.

The British driver took his sixth win in seven races while Barrichello failed to score after a troubled event.

The Brazilian is now 26 points behind Button in the standings.

Barrichello, however, is adamant things can change very fast and finally go his way.

"It takes one second. It takes really one second," said Barrichello when asked how to stop Button's momentum. "With all my experience I'm very cool.

"Basically right now I'm pissed off with the situation but tomorrow is another day and Silverstone is a great track for me and I will go there and try to win the race."

Barrichello admitted he was very disappointed with the result of his Turkish Grand Prix, after being hit by a clutch problem at the start.

"It's very disappointing," he said. "All the talk today was how Jenson could recover from losing the position to me at the start, because basically the evidence said that I could overtake him because I had more grip on my side.

"And having the anti-stall at the start, something I can't do anything about, and then not be able to use all the strength of the car is extremely disappointing."

The Brawn driver reckons next week's British Grand Prix will provide him with a great chance to open his wins accounts for the season.

"Yeah, I love the place, I love the track," he added. "I just don't want to do the race. I want the hat trick. I want everything. I want fastest lap, pole position...

"I have to look ahead. Jenson is very illuminated at this point. He's taking all the opportunities, sort of in a Michael (Schumacher) kind of way, because things are opening right in front of him without much of a problem. At one point there will be a drop and I want to be there to conquer.

"I cannot see him winning all the races of the season. So whenever he doesn't win, it's time for me to conquer."
