LONDON (November 9, 1997 2:06 p.m. EST http://www.nando.net) -- The
Williams-Renault team, accused of helping to fix the final Formula One
race of the season, said Sunday the charges were a ploy by Ferrari to
divert attention from an upcoming inquiry into the driving tactics of
Michael Schumacher.

In an interview published Sunday, Williams team owner Frank Williams
accused Ferrari of secretly taping his team's conversations, then
releasing the tapes in an attempt to divert attention from the
Schumacher inquiry.

"We understand that the contents of the tapes have been distributed
widely by Ferrari," Williams said. "I am very disappointed to discover
that Ferrari are listening to other teams during the races, but not
really surprised."

FIA president Max Mosley has called team owners to a Friday meeting in
London to discuss the matter.
