Fire in the Williams Garage!

As many as four Formula 1 personnel have been taken to the circuit medical centre, or local hospital in Barcelona, for medical checks after a major fire broke out in the Williams garage late on Sunday afternoon at the Circuit de Catalunya.

Sky Sports F1’s Ted Kravitz, standing in the pit lane at the time of the fire, reported that he saw a “huge ploom of orange flame” erupt from behind the divider in the Williams garage, where the team had congregated to celebrate Pastor Maldonado’s earlier victory in the race.

The team members were then seen evacuating into the pit lane as huge plooms of dark smoke began billowing out of the garage and up the pit lane. Mechanics from other teams went in to help put out the flames with the fire put out within several minutes.
