Vitaly Petrov's manager has devised a "plan B and plan C" in the event the Russian has already raced his last grand prix with Renault-Lotus.

Petrov has a valid contract for next season, but his manager Oksana Kosachenko rushed to Enstone this week for urgent talks, revealing that it is possible the 27-year-old is set to leave the team.

"We have a meeting to decide what we do, whether we stay or not," she is quoted by Auto Motor und Sport, confirming there is a 'plan B and plan C'.

The report said new GP2 champion Romain Grosjean is the frontrunner to be Kimi Raikkonen's teammate in 2012, with a return to the team next year for Robert Kubica considered unlikely.

Team boss Eric Boullier insisted: "We are committed to Kimi. The second driver, we will confirm when we are ready."
