Jul.25 (GMM) Williams looks set to keep the same driver lineup in 2011.
Team figures indicated recently that the extension of Rubens Barrichello's contract is a mere formality.The Brazilian veteran's current teammate is the reigning GP2 champion Nico Hulkenberg, who said recently he was worried about losing his seat for 2011."Ah, that was more of a joke," the 22-year-old German told F1's official website."Obviously I would be disappointed should I lose it. It means that I have to perform as well as I can and be as strong as I can to convince the team that I belong here," added Hulkenberg.He admits that team owners Frank Williams and Patrick Head "expected some more points" from him so far in 2010 -- currently he has 2 compared with Barrichello's 29.When asked by motorline.cc if both Hulkenberg and Barrichello will still be racing for Williams in 2011, the team's third co-owner Toto Wolff said: "That is the likelihood, yes."Wolff bought an undisclosed minority share of the Grove based team from Williams and Head late last year.
