Renault has been found guilty of being in illegal possession of information belonging to another team, but the FIA has elected not to punish the French manufacturer over its misconduct.

An extraordinary meeting of the World Motor Sport Council was held in Monaco today to determine the Regie's fate, but contrary to McLaren - whose data the case concerned and who themselves were heavily punished by way of an unprecedented $100 million USD fine and exclusion from the 2007 constructors' championship earlier in the year - it was deemed no penalty was necessary.

An FIA statement read:

'The World Council found Renault F1 to be in breach of article 151c of the International Sporting Code but imposed no penalty.

'Detailed reasons for this decision will be issued on December 7, 2007, and a transcript of the proceedings will be published as soon as possible thereafter.'
