Most of the Williams garage has been completely torched
Early reports have claimed that an explosion has occurred in the Williams garage after the Spanish Grand Prix.
The BBC report that it was caused by a KERS explosion on Pastor Maldonado’s car, which of course sits just below the fuel tank.
The fire was witnessed by both BBC and Sky F1 teams. It is unclear whether there have been any injuries, but at the moment there are several ambulances leaving the scene.
Will be updated as more news comes through.
Here is footage from the BBC:
And from Sky Sports F1:
