Rosberg wants to be in top team by 2010

Nico Rosberg has given notice that he only intends staying at Williams beyond 2009 if the British team is in the hunt for victories.

It emerged late last year that the 22-year-old German had extended his contract through to the end of 2009, with considerably improved financial terms.

But Rosberg told the national German daily Die Welt on Wednesday that, in 2010 and beyond, he wants to move forwards.

“After 2009, I see myself in a top team. Hopefully this will be Williams, but if not, I will go somewhere else,” he said.

Williams’ new car for 2008, the FW30, has been impressive so far in testing, and Rosberg thinks the team could become the third force behind ‘big two’ Ferrari and McLaren in 2008.

“We need to be attacking and beating Renault and BMW,” he said of the Grove team’s goals this year.
