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.
