Robert Kubica's manager is waiting for more information about the new owner before confirming if the Pole will drive for Renault in 2010.

24-year-old Kubica has already signed to switch from BMW-Sauber, but the contract presumably contains a clause allowing him to leave Renault if the ownership changes.

"We would like to know about Genii Capital and who is doing what in the team -- a partner can be a sleeping partner or a controlling partner," manager Daniele Morelli told the BBC.

Not yet disclosed is the minor percentage of Renault still controlled by the French carmaker, or whether Bob Bell will continue to be the team principal.

The Financial Times suggested that the Genii deal means Renault does not face "a heavy bill" for selling the team after signing the new Concorde Agreement.

Kubica's manager Morelli added that one side-effect of the change could be that development of the 2010 car has been delayed.

He said: "We need some time - at least a few days - to evaluate the new situation so I am not in a position to say we will leave or stay."
