The news remains unofficial, but a well-connected figure on Sunday all but confirmed the composition of Williams' driver line-up for 2010.

The British team heads into this weekend's Abu Dhabi season finale with Nico Rosberg and Kazuki Nakajima at the wheel of the FW31s, but Williams looks set for a wholesale change ahead of its next championship campaign.

Rosberg looks likely to head to Brawn, while Kazuki Nakajima is out of favour at Williams due to the forthcoming parting of ways with the Japanese driver's backer Toyota.

Willi Weber, famous in F1 circles for being Michael Schumacher's manager, let the cat out of the bag when speaking to Germany's Bild am Sonntag newspaper about his new charge, the 22-year-old rookie and current Williams test driver Nico Hulkenberg.

"I think he will be a match for his new teammate (Rubens) Barrichello," Weber said.
