No Marussia talks for Petrov

No Marussia talks for Petrov

Vitaly Petrov is unlikely to race for Marussia this season, according to his manager Oksana Kosachenko.

Marussia have a vacant seat for the 2013 season after they decided to axe the long-serving Timo Glock due to the financial challenges facing the industry.

With the Oxfordshire-based squad having plenty of financial backing from Russia, many immediately linked Petrov - who remains without a seat for this campaign - with a move there.

The Russian, though, remains in talks with Caterham, but it is not a clear-cut decision for the team bosses as his manager is still looking for new sponsors.

However, for now there is no move to Marussia on the cards.

"The Petrov situation depends on management decisions at Caterham," Kosachenko told F1News.ru. "There are no negotiations with Marussia."
