Renault Accepts FIA’s Verdict

Renault have accepted the verdict which has them on a two-year probation period for their involvement int he race-fixing incident at the 2008 Singapore Grand Prix.

The punishment of paying the costs of the race-fix investigation of the FIA and a potential ban form the sport should they have any further infractions of equal proportion (article 151c breach) over the next two years is acceptable by the French car manufacturer’s perspective.

“We are very sad to find ourselves in front of the Word Motor Sport Council today,”. “By way of background, as a result of our own enquiries, we informed the FIA last week that we would not defend the charges and we accepted our responsibilities in relation to the incident in Singapore and we immediately took appropriate action inside the team.

“Today, we fully accept the decision of the Council. We apologise unreservedly to the F1 community in relation to this unacceptable behaviour. We sincerely hope that we can soon put this matter behind us and focus constructively on the future. We will issue further information in the next few days.”
