As expected, the AT&T Williams F1 team has announced that veteran Rubens Barrichello and Nico Hulkenberg will join the squad in 2010.

Barrichello and Hulkenberg replace Nico Rosberg, who is rumoured to be on his way to Brawn or McLaren and Kazuki Nakajima.

Team boss, Sir Frank Williams is excited about his new line-up for next year, when the Grove-based outfit will also change engine suppliers, dumping Toyota in favour of Cosworth [see separate story - click here].

"Nico Rosberg and Kazuki Nakajima remain our drivers until the end of 2009 and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their contribution to the team.
