Gasly’s AlphaTauri catches fire in Singapore pit lane

    The side of the car went up in flames after an issue with the fuel cap.


    Pierre Gasly had a less-than-ideal start to his Singapore GP weekend after the Frenchman’s AlphaTauri caught fire in the pitlane during second practice.

    The car was fine on entry into the pits, but an issue with the fuel cap as the mechanics looked to bring it back into the garage set the sidepod alight, with the fire engulfing the left side of the car.

    Thankfully, no one was hurt during the incident, and Gasly was able to exit the car safely, if more quickly than he had planned as the mechanics put the fire out.
