Vitaly Petrov’s manager Oksana Kosachenko has published an interesting announcement, which I haven’t seen anywhere in the English language media so far. It’s on Petrov’s official website; however, it’s available only in Russian.
The article doesn’t reveal where exactly Petrov is going to but the tone is very optimistic. Kosachenko expresses gratitude to all the supporters, the sponsors, the Renault team and Gerard Lopez (she doesn’t mention Eric Boullier though). She confirms that many sposors are going to continue to support Petrov in the future.
The main message is that they are confident of F1 future and promise to announce more detailed news in January or, as the manager puts it, “certainly make a beautiful New Year present for all the F1 friends”. According to Kosachenko, “the story of Russia and Vitaly Petrov in F1 is just beginning”.

I wonder what that future could be? A reserve driver role with Marussia?
