The Renault F1 Team Managing Director, Flavio Briatore, spoke briefly about the tyre situation encountered this morning at Indianapolis.

After recommendations were issued by Michelin concerning tyre usage at Indianapolis, following incidents encountered during Friday practice that cannot at this stage be fully explained, Flavio Briatore clarified the Renault F1 Team's position on the situation:

"We fully support Michelin in this situation, and in the efforts they are making to best resolve it. They are flying out different tyres to use in tomorrow's race -- the same that were used in Barcelona for the Spanish Grand Prix," explained Briatore.

"The authorisation to use them has not yet been granted, but if that were not given, we would not compete in tomorrow's race. The safety of our drivers remains our number one priority."
