The Williams team says it is "pleased" its entry for the 2010 Formula 1 championship has been accepted by the FIA.
Williams was, along with Force India, the only team to have submitted an unconditional entry for next year's championship and, as expected, the FIA confirmed it on Friday.
"The AT&T Williams team is pleased to confirm that its entry to the 2010 FIA Formula One World Championship has been accepted by the FIA," said the team in a statement.
Team boss Frank Williams added: "2010 will be my 42nd consecutive season in Formula 1. We are already designing the main elements of next year's FW32 which will build on the useful step forward taken with the FW31."
