Team Lotus has played down reports one of its main Formula One transporters caught fire at Istanbul Park late on Friday.

During Saturday morning's last practice session before qualifying in Turkey, British broadcaster the BBC said a fire broke out in the truck's plant room causing "a fair bit of drama".

Lotus confirmed: "It was minor and only damaged some wiring inside the trailer. (The) fire hasn't affected anything to do with the cars or systems."
