Nico Hulkenberg's manager, Willi Weber, says the German will line-up for Williams next season, partnering Rubens Barrichello.
Hulkenberg, who currently tests for Williams, won this year's GP2 title with a round to spare, adding to his Formula Three Euroseries and A1GP conquests.
And now the German is preparing to line-up on the F1 grid next season with Weber revealing he will be partnering Barrichello at Williams.
Added to that, his manager believes Hulkenberg will have the measure of the experienced Brazilian racer.
"I think he will have his new team-mate Barrichello in his grasp," Weber told Germany's Bild am Sonntag. Hulkenberg, who has previously been likened to Michael Schumacher in his rise through the ranks, a comparison that Weber agrees with.
"Nico is insanely talented. He is also as hard-working as Michael," he said. More recently, though, he's been compared to departing Ferrari driver, Kimi Raikkonen, at least in looks. Weber, though, says there is one marked difference: "Nico looks like Kimi... but he doesn't not drink like him."
The Abu Dabi GP the Yas Marina circuit for the Grand Prix of United Arab Emirates takes place on the 1st of November.
