A huge fire has broken out at the 2023 Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne.

The fire broke out just after qualifying at the Albert Park Circuit, and it was visible on live TV.

Mercedes driver George Russell, who qualified in P2, was in the middle of an interview when the inferno started.

It occurred at the start of the Supercars event, which is one of many support events as part of the 2023 Australian Grand Prix weekend.

Max Verstappen took pole in an unusual qualifying session, ahead of Russell and Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton.

Fernando Alonso qualified in P4, but he will be hoping to utilise Aston Martin’s strong long-run pace to overtake both Mercedes drivers tomorrow.
