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."
