As it emerges that his employer Renault has asked him to lose some weight, F1 2010 rookie Vitaly Petrov - the first Russian ever to join the grand prix grid - admits he needs to start finishing races...

The double floor will certainly help. I think Ferrari has a similar system on their car.

But Petrovs raw pace for only his 3rd race was impressive. He certianly gave Hamilton, who is more experienced and had a much faster car, something to think about for a couple of laps.

Seeing him in the wet in qualifying was pretty good going also given his experience.

I am sure he will see a chequered flag, once he stops beating the snot out of his car! I dont know if anyone else noticed but this guy is rough on his machine. I wish him the best, it is good for the sport and good for his country. Good luck! :)

While its true that he needs to finish, can anyone here honestly say that they thought that Petrov would be fighting with Hamilton already. Finally the first Re :)nualt rookie since Heikki with potential.
