Whether it is the continued doubt over the budget cap row or simply that it has had enough of F1, Renault has been advising its suppliers that there is no guarantee it will be in F1 next season.

According to reports in the German media, Renault Sport has written to numerous suppliers warning them that its future is far form certain.

"There is the possibility that we will no longer be in Formula 1 in 2010," advises the French company i the letter. "The far-reaching changes to the technical and sporting regulations have the consequence that Renault Sport can no longer be certain of its future in Formula 1, it is possible that we will not participate in the Formula 1 World Championship in 2010."

At a time when sections of the media are claiming that FOTA and the FIA are inching towards a deal, such an admission from the former World Champions indicates that the matter is far from settled, at least as far as the French outfit is concerned.

Last weekend, Flavio Briatore denied reports that he is considering buying the team.
