As speculation about the German driver's future rises, Sir Frank Williams has revealed he will "fight" to keep Nico Rosberg at his eponymous team.

It is regularly rumoured that, with the 23-year-old's contract set to expire at the end of this season, he is looking to step into a more competitive or lucrative seat for 2010.

"I will fight for Nico," said Williams, who brought the son of the 1982 world champion into the sport as a teenage test driver.

"For me, Nico drives on a par with Hamilton or Vettel. Other teams are interested, so when it comes to salary, we are pretty limited. Our only argument is going to be making the car faster," he is quoted as telling Germany's Auto Bild.

"That is the only way we are going to keep him," predicted Williams, 67.
