Vitaly Petrov has admitted he could switch to the German touring car series DTM in 2014. The Russian has been looking to return to formula one, having lost his Caterham seat at the end of last season.

"I have contacted Mercedes to find out their situation (regarding DTM)," Petrov told the Russian publication Championat. "I also know the situation in BMW. You could even say that I have the budget for DTM," he added.

Petrov, 29, said arranging his return to F1 is more of a "headache", but insists the pinnacle of motor racing remains his top priority. However, Championat said Petrov is also set to imminently test a rally car.

Asked what his chances are of a return to F1 for 2014, he answered: "Basically the same as before. I am talking and waiting. Obviously the Williams seat is gone, but I am still talking with three teams," revealed Petrov. (GMM)
