Renault have distanced themselves from the Grand Prix Manufacturers' Association (GPMA), saying a statement made by the organisation this morning is not endorsed by the French car maker or its F1 team.
The GPMA issued a statement today, seemingly on behalf of all its members, which include Renault, Mercedes, BMW, Toyota and Honda, urging the FIA to accept a proposal for a partial freeze on engine development - a proposal supported, the GPMA said, by all teams bar Midland and Prodrive.
The statement was critical of FIA president Max Mosley and hinted the GPMA members could even follow legal actions against the governing body if the existing proposals are rejected.
But Renault have moved to make it clear they do not stand behind the statement.
"This morning, a press statement was released by the GPMA concerning the future engine format for Formula One," Renault said in a press release.
"Renault and the Renault F1 Team wish to clarify that this statement was released without their agreement, and that neither the manufacturer nor the team consider themselves to be party to it."
