Former F1 driver Vitaly Petrov
will race a Mercedes
in the German touring car series DTM in 2014.
The former Renault
and Caterham driver tested for the German marque recently, with Toto Wolff
saying Petrov had a good chance of a race seat because "Russia is a highly significant market".
"Vitaly had a successful test at Portimao and I'm sure that he will be a valuable member of our team," Wolff said in a statement on Friday. (GMM)
