"We don't want a fault by two people to reflect upon the whole company and the entire formula one team.
"I don't know all the details but there was a fault and a fault requires a sanction."
"We will know more about the details after what will happen with the FIA," said Pelata.
"This is not the debate now – we will have it calmly.
"Formula one is the world's most-watched show and you have to respect that. Formula one has been in the vanguard of progress for car technology.
"It is probably not the case at the moment, but it could be again and it is always what Renault have tried to do."
