Esteban Ocon

WATCH: Ocon's car catches fire at the end of Brazil Sprint

The Alpine driver stopped in the pit lane at the end of the session, but seconds later a fire broke out on his car as he got out.

Esteban Ocon had a fiery end to the Brazil Sprint race after a suspected fuel leak caused a fire when he stopped at the end of the pit lane.

The Alpine appeared to have a hole in the side of his car as a result of contact at Turn 4 towards the end of the race.

Ocon was running in P7 before he dropped outside of the top 10, having previously made contact at the start with teammate Fernando Alonso which forced him to pit to change his front wing.

Alonso ultimately ended the Sprint in P15 while Ocon was P18, which is where they will lineup for tomorrow's race.
