Rosberg to test Williams-BMW on December 3

Nico Rosberg will test a Williams-BMW FW24 on December 3 in Barcelona. The 17-year-old son of former World Champion Keke Rosberg will get the chance thanks to his victory in the Formula BMW ADAC Championship this year, having scored nine victories in 20 races.

"It was such a superlative performance that we want to give Nico the special opportunity of a Formula 1 test," said BMW's Gerhard Berger.

Nico has been racing since he was given his first kart at the age of nine and won his first championship at 11 before becoming one of the top kart drivers in Formula Super A. This year was his first in car racing.
