As predicted by Autosport, and well, everyone else on the planet, Williams has confirmed Rubens Barrichello and Nico Hulkenberg as their drivers for 2010. The team will also move from Toyota to Cosworth as their engine supplier.

Sir Frank:

Rubens needs no introduction. He is not only the most experienced driver in Formula 1, 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 Euro Series, Formula Masters, A1 GP, and Formula BMW Germany.

The 2009 Williams drivers are still uncertain. Most believe that Nico Rosberg is off to Brawn GP, but it will be awhile until we hear for sure. Kazuki Nakajima is probably going the way of Ralf Schumacher despite his strong ties with Toyota.
