WILLIAMS haven't quite lived up to the promise of their winter testing, but Kazuki Nakajima and Nico Rosberg have still registered two points finishes each to put the team fourth in the constructors' championship and Rosberg can deliver another in Turkey today.

Rosberg has done nothing to tarnish his reputation as one of the brightest future prospects this season and scored his maiden podium in Australia in March.

His two failures to score came after tangling with Timo Glock's Toyota in Malaysia and when suffering a rare engine failure in Spain two weeks ago.

Rosberg has coped particularly well with the loss of traction control, and another of his trademark lightning getaways would see him in a good position to upset some of the lighter-fuelled runners starting ahead of him.

Having just missed out on a place in the top-ten shootout in qualifying yesterday, Rosberg will start with a heavy fuel load and in a strong position tactically.

The German's laptime in Q2 was less than a second slower than Kimi Raikkonen, suggesting he can keep pace with the pack, and he only needs to finish eighth for a profit at 4.
