Renault heard those dreaded words, Extraordinary Meeting of the World Motor Sport Council, specifically regarding “a breach of Article 151c of the International Sporting Code.” The team has been asked to appear in Paris on September 21.

Article 151c refers to “any fraudulent conduct or any act prejudicial to the interests of any competition or to the interests of motor sport generally.”

Renault acknowledged the request but refused further comment in an official statement.
