Mercedes signs Petrov for DTM

Former F1 driver Vitaly Petrov will race a Mercedes in the German touring car series DTM in 2014.

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.
