The case for him staying at Renault -
1. as Renault get closer to the top he will be a huge hazard to the other teams ie will take points away from competitors, helping Renault's no1 driver
2. Constructor's title is still out of reach and anyway, all focus shd be on no1 driver so no point to have equal drivers crashing into each other like RBR
3. Petrov is always having incidents so is good for sponsors as the cameras are always on him !

I'm just sorry that all the F1 seats are not occupied by the best drivers in the world...

This is supposed to be the pinnacle of motorsport... yet all we get is drivers getting seats through sponsership and the FIA constantly implementing measures to ensure the sport remains as boring as possible.

Early in the season I was watching the practice session and the camera was looking into the Renault garage. There was a woman in there and Croftie said "Who's that lady talking to Petrov, is it his mum?" and Anthony Davidson replied "No, actually its his manager."

Alan D, those early season clips of his manager in the garage always made me think of Rocky IV.

His poor Renault must have been shuddering every time he said, "I will break you" back in the garage.
