Williams F1 confirms 2010 driver line-up

The AT&T Williams F1 team has confirmed that its drivers for 2010 will be Rubens Barrichello and Nico Hulkenberg.
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].

"Rubens needs no introduction. He is not only the most experienced driver in F1, but a passionate and talented driver who fought hard for the Drivers' Championship this year," said Sir Frank.

"Nico Hulkenberg won the GP2 Championship this season as a rookie and has previously won the F3 Euroseries, Formula Masters, A1 GP and Formula BMW Germany.

"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.

"Nico and Kazuki have represented the AT&T Williams F1 team and our partners with dedication, discipline and skill and we wish them every success with their future endeavours."

No surprise, but I'm happy that Hulkenberg has finally been confirmed. I've never understood why some people (a few commentators in particular) weren't convinced by him. He has the best record of any F1 newcomer for a while... 2005 - Formula BMW ADAC - 1st 2006/7 - A1GP - 1st 2008 - F3 Euro Series - 1st 2009 - GP2 - 1st

I like Ruben's and think he deserves a better car than what williams will give him next year, for which I'm sure will be his last year in F1, I wonder how much this driver line up has cost Williams, Nothing i Suspect !
