F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone is set to meet with Renault CEO Carlos Ghosn over a dispute that has arisen between the two parties.

The issue is said to be over Renault’s motorhome after Renault were told it could not be parked in the F1 paddock despite being an engine supplier to a number of teams including Red Bull and Lotus.

Ecclestone told reporters: "Renault is a supplier, and if we let them all in the paddock, there would be no room for anyone else."

However the argument between the pair seems to run deeper than just the motorhome as Ecclestone is said to be furious with the price tag Renault wants to put on its 2014 engines, a price said to be between €20-€23m per team per season.

The smaller teams such as Caterham and Williams who both also use Renault power are not happy with the proposed price, but Renault are staying firm to that estimate and that is said to have been the reason tensions were heightened before the motorhome situation in Barcelona and the ensuing meeting with Ghosn.

Meanwhile Ecclestone has shrugged off the reports German prosecutors are set to charge him with bribery in the Gerhard Gribkowsky case.

Speaking on Wednesday Ecclestone said: "They haven't told me, that's the only problem," he told PA Sport news agency.

"To be quite honest with you I haven't done anything about any of these things. I haven't bothered.

"If I have to get bothered, then I'll get bothered," the 82-year-old added.

He also stated he does not consider resigning over the case.
