Wurz to make Williams debut next week

Alexander Wurz will get his first run with Williams at Jerez in Spain next week, the team have confirmed.
The Austrian signed to become Williams' third driver over the New Year break and will have his first outing in the team's interim Cosworth-powered car next Wednesday.
He is scheduled to drive alongside Nico Rosberg on that first day, before returning for another day of testing on Friday with Mark Webber.
Williams have continued to sing Wurz's praises since swooping for his services when it became clear that he was out of contract at McLaren.
The team's chief executive Chris Chapple told this week's Autosport: "He brings a level of experience which simply wasn't available anywhere else and he immediately went to the top of our list."
