So might Webber, 36, now be eyeing Brazilian Barrichello's all-time record, which stands at 326 grands prix?
"I'll never reach it -- absolutely no chance," he told Austrian television Servus TV.
"He drove over three hundred grands prix and was in formula one for 17 years -- a great career," said Webber.
"But it's a long time. The record will probably last forever. Definitely I can't challenge it -- I'd have to still be here another seven seasons!" he exclaimed.
Indeed, some believe Webber will exit F1's paddock turnstiles at the end of this season, having been linked with Porsche's new Le Mans prototype project.
