Renault are open to supplying more teams with engines in the near future as long as it doesn't damage the support they offer Red Bull, says Renault-Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn.
The French manufacturer currently supplies four teams - Red Bull, Lotus, Williams and Caterham - the most of any supplier. However they would be willing to add a fifth team should the rules allow it.
"We will provide as many teams as is allowed by the rules - because there are some rules and we will follow the rules," he said.
"We are ready to offer our technology to more teams, but on the condition that we do not dilute the attention on the teams that are winning."
He specified Red Bull as their priority as the championship winning team is effectively Renault's 'works team' following the investment in the team from Infiniti - a Renault-Nissan subsidiary - which will become the teams title sponsor in 2013.
"For us preserving a very strong technical support for Red Bull is a priority. We want to make sure that we are always on the teams that wins and which can compete.
"The [Renault-Nissan] Alliance is committed to Formula One through the very old commitment of Renault, which has been in Formula One for so many years and won so many titles, but also now with Infiniti coming and supporting one specific team and working with one specific team to make sure [we are] bringing the alliance to the forefront of racing," he added.
