Renault is open to supplying one more team in Formula One.

That is the claim of Carlos Tavares, who became the French carmaker's new chief operating officer earlier this year.

For 2012, Renault is adding Williams to its customer roster, in addition to the existing engine deals with Red Bull, Lotus-Renault GP, and Team Lotus.

"Four teams, that's fine," Tavares told France's Auto Hebdo in an exclusive interview. "Five? Why not? But no more than that."
