Vitaly Petrov has a solid contract with Renault for 2012, but the Russian's manager says she is already negotiating with other teams.
Oksana Kosaczenko told f1news.ru that there is no danger 26-year-old Petrov will not see out his Renault contract, even in the event of Robert Kubica's return to Formula One.
"We are talking with sponsors and negotiating with teams," she said. "Life does not end after the 2012 season."
Kosaczenko would not divulge the names of the teams she has spoken to, but said Petrov is developing well at Renault despite the team's "shortcomings".
