Patrick Overwijk, F1 Sponsorship Manager, Philips Consumer Lifestyle, said: ?Last season we found fourteen very talented drivers who demonstrated a perfect combination of skill, track awareness, consistency and a willingness to learn. In 2009, we?re hoping that the Philips Driving Academy will unearth a number of men and women who also have what it takes to drive the AT&T Williams car. Good luck!?
