Nico Hulkenberg will race for Williams in 2010

First day of the offseason is turning into a day of announcements. As expected the AT&T Williams team today confirmed Rubens Barrichello and Nico Hulkenberg will drive for the Cosworth powered team in 2010 season. The 2009 GP2 champion Nico Hulkenberg is the second rookie already confirmed for 2010 season following the Campos META/Bruno Senna announcement.

“Rubens needs no introduction. He is not only the most experienced driver in Formula One, but a passionate and talented driver who fought hard for the Drivers’ Championship this year. 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 AT&T Williams and our partners with dedication, discipline and skill and we wish them every success with their future endeavours.” – Frank Williams

It is expected that Nico Rosberg will take Barrichello’s seat in Brawn GP. No one really knows what the future holds for Kazuki Nakajima, especially after Kamui Kobayashi’s strong and determined race performances in Brazil and Abu Dhabi made him favourite to land the Toyota seat for next season.

    Nevermind – I missed the Rosberg part.

    When do we find out about Heidfeld and if he has a seat next year?
