    Just seen this on F1 on Sky. No idea what’s happened yet.
    Every mechanic in the pitlane is taking part in trying to put this fire out.
    Everyone is being moved out of the paddock.
    Lots of concern about cars and trucks out the back of the garage.

    The fire has now spread to Caterham, Sauber, Toro Rosso and Force India. Everyone’s fleeing apart from the guys fighting the fire. Very brave.

    It’s not a small fire either so I wonder what was happening there? On the F1 Forum I saw Lotus mechanics running up the paddock with fire extinguishers as well so it seems everyone is trying to help.

    Think the fire’s all out now. Lots of teams helped, great to see, and everyone moved out flammable things asap to stop more stuff going up.
    Head counts going on now.
