"The teams are, however, completely independent from Bernie Ecclestone, so he can't influence their decisions in any way, unfortunately."

Bernie dosen't give a monkey's armpit about Petrov, all he's interested is getting f1 into Russia so that he can get his sticky little fingers on some Russian money. Petrov like everyone else bernie has contact with is just a pawn in his game.

Yeah, but he's still better than Trulli, Caterham could do worse than picking up some Rubles along with a relatively competant mid-level driver. Petrov has had issues for sure, but still has some speed. At least he wouldn't be whining about power steering all the time. I got a little tired of that dance.

I wouldn't discount Petrov's abilities after the way he c*ck blocked Alonso for almost the entire race at Abu Dhabi in 2010. He's a world class driver for sure!

Ptolomy,

Now there was an interesting situation of not team orders, but engine manufacturer orders. Petrov seemed to be under strict instructions from Renault to hold Alonso at bay. There is no doubt that Renault wanted the F1 world champion's car to be powered by a Renault (as Vettel's RBR was).

Perhaps Red Bull should have given him a reserve driver role to thank him for what he did to Alonso at Abu Dhabi in 2010. Probably be an improvement on Buemi.
