Williams have confirmed their three-year engine partnership with Toyota will cease at the end of the season.

"We are proud we have been able to work with such a great company and we are grateful to Toyota," said Williams team principal Sir Frank Williams.

"I would like to single out for our thanks the Toyota engineers and technicians in Cologne who have worked within our race team tirelessly."

Williams will confirm their engine partner for 2010 in due course.

Renault and Cosworth have been touted as possible replacements.

Toyota motorsport boss Tadashi Yamashina said: "We have enjoyed a productive working relationship with Williams and I believe both companies have benefited from that partnership.

"We respect the wishes of Williams to look for other opportunities and wish them well for the future."
