Nico Rosberg told reporters on Thursday that this weekend's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is his last of 70 races for the Williams team.

The 24-year-old hinted at the confirmation earlier this week, when he told a German magazine that "if I was to change (teams), it would be a difficult situation in Abu Dhabi" because of his strong relationship with the British team.

When he arrived at the impressive Yas Marina Circuit, he announced that he will have a new team in 2010. It is believed he has signed with Mercedes and will be deployed at either McLaren or Brawn.

But the German said on Thursday: "I don't want to talk about my future. I just want to say that I won't be at Williams, because that is for sure."
