4 January 2011

Vitaly Petrov is set to receive backing from state-run company Rostekhnologii ahead of the new season, according to French news agency AFP on Tuesday, with the deal having been brokered by Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

It has already been confirmed that Petrov will remain with the newly-named Lotus Renault GP outfit for two more seasons, with Russia set to stage its first ever Formula 1 Grand Prix in Sochi from 2014.

“The number of Russian motorsport enthusiasts is increasing by the day,” Putin, who announced the inaugural Russian Grand Prix with Bernie Ecclestone in mid-October, is quoted as saying.

“Petrov, who is very famous amongst Formula 1 fans here, has just signed a new two-year contract and definitely needs support.”

The 26-year-old from Vyborg is the only Russian F1 driver to date, having made his debut at the start of 2010 before recording a personal best finish of fifth in August’s Hungarian Grand Prix.
