On Saturday morning, a few hours before the start of the third Free Practice session for the German Grand Prix, a small broke out in the Williams pit garage. It was apparently caused by a KERS failure.

The team was carrying out pit stop practice when the incident occurred. The Williams team, together with the teams who were close by and the circuit fire marshals, managed to contain the fire and smoke. There were no injuries.

The KERS unit has been removed from the car and contained in sand, which will dissipate the heat that the failure continues to generate.

Maldonado is in his car and ready to go out for the final practice session.
