The major fire erupted on Kevin Magnussen’s car during FP1 in Malaysia.
Renault believe an issue with their fuel breather system was to blame for the major fire that erupted on Kevin Magnussen’s car during FP1 in Malaysia.
The Dane had just completed his first installation lap and was being wheeled back into the Renault garage when flames erupted at the top of the engine cover.
He jumped clear and the team rapidly fought the flames, but with fuel continuing to leak, the car continued to catch fire, meaning it took around 10 minutes to bring the situation fully under control.
