Videos: Ericsson crashes and his Sauber car catches fire

The final session of French GP opening practice session Marcus Ericsso has crashed at Turn 12 – and there’s an engine fire at the rear of the Sauber.

The Swede has been told by his team to get out of the car quickly – and Ericsson is indeed out of the cockpit.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a fire in an F1 car,” says Sky Sports F1 analyst Anthony Davidson.

“I’m sure the FIA will want to know why the car erupted in flames.”
