It is expected that here will be disquiet in the upper hierarchy of Formula 1 after comments made by Renault CEO Carlos Ghosn, who also heads up Nissan, suggested that the French automaker might pull out of the sport ahead of the 2010 season.

At present Renault has said they will make a decision about their F1 team before the end of the year, but Ghosn doesn't send out hopeful messages.

“F1 is one of the most-seen spectacles in the world. It is facing some challenges: Challenges on how fair it is and how do you marry F1 with the environmental concerns. Can you bring zero emission through technology? So there are lots of questions about F1,” he told.

“I don't think it is going to be very important for anybody, if it doesn’ t answer some of the concerns that surround F1," Ghosn replied. "I notice that in the last year, three car manufacturers have bowed out of F1. Three in one year! That means there are a lot of questions that we need to resolve.”
