Williams to run Piquet and Rosberg

The BMW Williams team will test Nico Rosberg and Nelson Piquet Jr at Jerez de Frontera in the first week of December. Rosberg had a very brief run with the team last year but Williams is keen to give the pair (both sons of former Williams World Champions) a proper run to see if they have the potential to be test drivers with Williams in 2004. The team will retain Marc Gene but may take on a second test driver as well. Although the two youngsters are under consideration, it is thought likely that if Williams does decide to take on another tester that the job will go to Antonio Pizzonia.
