Renault: Räikkönen or Petrov?

Stephan Heublein



Kimi Raikkonen is the famous name now linked with Renault for 2011, but Vitaly Petrov is still valued by the team, owner Gerard Lopez insists.

The 2007 world champion's possible interest in driving alongside Robert Kubica has stirred the news headlines, but Lopez is still hopeful the Russian rookie Petrov is a winning formula from a business point of view.

"We have to push our team to succeed because we use the platform to do business," he is quoted by sportbusiness.com.
