Formula E has confirmed that one person has been taken to hospital for precautionary checks following a fire that broke out during pre-season testing at Valencia.
The fire broke out midway through the day at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo behind the Williams Advanced Engineering garage, with the championship working with local authorities to contain it.
It was reportedly caused by a car battery that has been taken out of the DS Penske of Robert Shwartzman, which stopped out on track during the morning session.
The section has now been cordoned off as the situation is dealt with, while no further casualties have been reported after the pit building was evacuated.
This is the first day of pre-season testing for the 2023/24 season, with further test days scheduled for Wednesday and Friday.
A statement from Formula E read: "In a break between practice sessions, a fire was detected in the pit lane and garage area which has been contained.
"The on-track incident response team acted immediately to contain the incident while the main pit building and garages were quickly evacuated.
"One person has been assessed by medics and has been transported to hospital for precautionary checks.
"Formula E, the FIA and local fire authorities are investigating the cause and will provide further update in due course."
