Pierre Gasly assured that the fire that forced him to jump out of his car during the second free practice session of the Singapore GP was “nothing worrying”.

Gasly finished FP2 at the Marina Bay City Circuit in 14th place. At one point, the Frenchman had to jump out of his AT03 car as it had caught fire on the pit lane. The reason for that was a fuel breather.

Later on, Gasly managed to return to the race track and continue his program.

“It kind of got a bit hot, but no, nothing worrying,” he said.

“The fuel breather was connected, and something went wrong because in these conditions, it is slightly different than usual, and in the end, it just burnt some paint.

“It wasn’t anything, so I managed to get out of the car from the moment I saw it, to the moment I got out, I think I told my mechanics: ‘I don’t think I’ve got out as fast as today’.

“It was just to be safe, and it is nothing concerning for the rest of the weekend.

“I saw in the mirrors, and understood with the expressions on the faces of the mechanics something was going on and it was better to get out.”
