Wurz: Williams deal is perfect

Alexander Wurz has expressed his delight at having joined the Williams team, saying his situation at the British team is "perfect".

"My current situation with Williams is simply perfect," the Austrian told APA. "There is no better contract for a third driver - both financially and concerning the future. This is a special challenge for me.

"I want to help Williams as much as I can, so the team returns to the top."

The 31-year old has joined Williams as their test and reserve driver after five seasons with the McLaren team.

And although McLaren have been more competitive than Williams in recent times, Wurz believes the team from Grove are determined to return to the top soon.

"If you know Frank Williams, you know there is only one goal for him: to reach to top step of the podium," he added. "That, realistically, is not yet achievable, but the team will do everything possible to be back to the top quickly."

Wurz will make his debut with Williams this week at the Jerez circuit.
