Three McLaren team members have received medical treatment following a fire incident that took place in the Formula 1 team’s garage at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona on Friday.
The British team (McLaren F1), Racing Point and Williams were completing filming days, a day after the first pre-season testing week had finished, with the trio being permitted to do a series of laps with a one hundred kilometer limit being enforced.
A McLaren spokesperson said: “There was a small fire in the garage during the team’s private filming day.
“The fire was quickly extinguished by the team, and circuit emergency services and medical teams attended immediately in support.
“Three team members were taken to the medical centre for treatment and were released shortly after.”
The team are currently assessing the damage. The second pre-season test begins on Tuesday and will run for four days.
The incident happened nearly seven years after a similar fire related incident broke out at Barcelona in the Williams garage, not long after Pastor Maldonado had secured a shock win for the team at the 2012 Spanish Grand Prix.
