Williams and Wurz

Williams F1 HAS signed a contract with Austrian Alexander Wurz for him to become the team's test and reserve driver in 2006. Although there was speculation yesterday, the deal was not completed until this afternoon and one can only guess that Williams has either decided that it no longer wants money for the third driver or that Wurz has some backing to get him the job at Williams. The news means that Narain Karthikeyan may find himself out of work although it is still possible that the Indian driver could become the team's fourth driver.

An announcement is expected shortly.
