Spyker fire a 'near-disaster'
Team control danger blaze

Apr.23 (GMM) F1 narrowly averted disaster at the Bahrain grand prix earlier this month.

We have learned that Spyker mechanics almost lost control of a fire that broke out near the back of the team's garage at the Sakhir circuit on the Saturday of qualifying.

Video footage of the incident shows mechanics scrambling to the scene with fire extinguishers, as huge flames licked dangerously around nearby compressed-air bottles.
