Wolff: Petrov’s DTM seat chances are good

Wolff: Petrovs DTM seat chances are good

Vitaly Petrov

Vitaly Petrov has a good chance of restarting his motor racing career in the German touring car series DTM.

That is the claim of Mercedes‘ Toto Wolff, after former Renault and Caterham driver Petrov made his test debut for the German marque a week ago.

“Russia is a highly significant market for the DTM and for Mercedes-Benz,” Wolff said at the time.

However, he made no mention of Russian Petrov’s chances of actually securing a race seat for 2014.

Wolff told Russia’s f1news.ru website that the 29-year-old was predictably “fast” in the test.

“Vitaly has been on the podium in formula one. What else do you need to say?” said the Austrian.

“The test was successful, and now we are trying to bring everything together to sign a contract.

“We are considering the option (of signing Petrov) very seriously,” added Wolff. “If you want me to be specific, I would say the chances are about 60 per cent.”
