Vitaly Petrov’s father assassinated in Russia

Vitaly Petrov has abruptly vacated his post as a F1 steward this weekend following the apparent assassination of his father in Russia. The FIA announced on Saturday that Formula E safety car driver Bruno Correia has stepped up at Portimao to replace Petrov “due to a personal bereavement”. Multiple Russian reports claim that former F1 driver Petrov’s 61-year-old father Alexandr was shot to death at his home in Vyborg on Saturday evening. “It is only natural that people may have different opinions, and he (Petrov) just expressed his own. But I have not followed this story so I am not really ready to comment on it,” the Alpha Tauri driver added.
