The Williams F1 Team’s Garage Burst Into Flames Following Spanish Gran Prix Win [Video]

It took eight years but the Williams F1 team finally had a win at this year’s Spanish Gran Prix race only to have it marred by disaster.

Shortly after taking the team picture it appears that the KERS unit, as system that stores electricity for use in the race, sparked a fuel fire which caused the garage to burst into flames.

It has been reported that there were multiple injuries and a team member was pulled out of the blaze with his legs on fire.

This is an ongoing story but we have the following video of the fire as it was occurring.

Steven has been around the tech world long enough to see most of the stuff we think of cool happen before which leads to a certain bit of cynicism that has contributed to him being known as the cranky old fart of the Internet. Besides sharing some of the goodness that he finds with you here at 42x you can also find him curating some digital goodness at Winextra (tech type stuff) and Rotten Gumdrops (for your daily dose of WTF).
