A fire has broken out in the Williams garage with smoke engulfing the pitlane at the Circuit de Catalunya.

Fumes of smoke were seen to billow out of the Williams pit approximately an hour after the team's victory at Barcelona, although the flames are now believed to have been put out.

Sky Sports F1's Ted Kravitz was in the pit lane at the time of the fire and said: "I saw the fire take hold and it just absolutely erupted. We were talking to Alex Wurz at the time and we were just having a look [into the garage] and suddenly I saw this wall of flame erupt from behind the Williams garage divider.

"It looked to be in the area where they store things like fuel and oil and gearboxes and computers and there will be an immense amount of damage to a lot of equipment."

Sky Sports F1 reported that it understood that a Force India mechanic had been taken to hospital and Ted added: "Frank [Williams] was wheeled out very quickly, I saw it myself over my shoulder.

"I'm pleased to see I haven't seen any ambulances going to the aid of any people. I'm not saying there are not causalities because we just don't know that at the moment. There are a lot of Williams people who have inhaled smoke."

Senna's car looks okay. I hope that most of the equipment was already out of the garage because they were doing their post race pack up.

I bet the reported injuries are mostly smoke inhalation and minor burns. Well, I hope anyway.

The Senna's car does not look so bad.

Looks like the KERS battery was moved in the back of the garage.

There the most damage should be!

Garage fire mars Williams’ post-race celebrations 13 May 2012

Williams’ celebrations of Pastor Maldonado’s Spanish Grand Prix victory have been cut dramatically short after a fire broke out in the team’s garage shortly after the race, engulfing the Barcelona pit lane in thick smoke.

Mechanics from various teams took immediate action to extinguish the flames and emergency services arrived soon after. There are no immediate reports of any serious injuries, though some Force India and Williams personnel have been taken to the medical centre.

Williams tester Valtteri Bottas told UK F1 broadcasters Sky that there had been some kind of explosion in the back of the garage while Sir Frank Williams was giving a victory speech to the team.

There was extensive damage to the Williams equipment in the garage, which contained Bruno Senna's car, the Brazilian having retired early from the race after a collision with Mercedes' Michael Schumacher.

With the fire safely extinguished, police cordoned off the affected area of the pit lane.
