London, Sep.1 (ANI): Bernie Ecclestone has admitted that Formula One had been rocked by race-fix fears.

Motorsport chiefs have launched a probe into last year's Singapore Grand Prix after claims Nelson Piquet was ordered to crash by Renault, allowing team-mate Fernando Alonso to pull off a shock win, reports The Sun.

Ecclestone said: "This is not good for the sport. I do not know if it is true or not. I have no idea. But if it is true, then I would have thought Nelson was in just as much trouble. If I tell you to go and rob a bank and you get caught, you can't say, 'Bernie told me to'. "

The FIA could send the case to the World Motor Sport Council, which has the power to boot Renault out of F1. (ANI)
