Recently crowned GP2 champion Nico Hulkenberg has confirmed that he expects to make the move to F1 for 2010, as rumours of a race seat at Williams grow.

"I hope and think so," Hulkenberg told Germany's Sport Bild when asked if he will be on the F1 grid next season.

He added: "I feel very good with Williams and would gladly stay there."

Already a Williams test driver, the British team has an option on the 22-year-old German for next season, although his manager Willi Weber insisted they are not the only team interested.

"We are negotiating with several teams," Weber told German news agency DPA. "Williams has an option."

A decision on Hulkenberg's F1 future could come in the next few weeks.
