The FIA insists it has no plans to appoint a single supplier of fuel in formula one. With the governing body hinting at the move after the recent World Motor Sport Council meeting, we reported that F1's major teams had expressed their objections.

That is because they all have separate and lucrative deals in place with major oil corporations: Ferrari with Shell, Renault with Total, Mercedes with Petronas, McLaren with Mobil. But in the Yeongam paddock on Thursday, it emerged that the FIA had allayed the teams' fears. "Fuel was mentioned (in the World Council statement) purely for illustrative purposes," a FIA spokesman is quoted by Reuters.

A source at the Paris based federation, meanwhile, said the mention of fuel in the statement had been a "mistake". (GMM)
