Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg has to get back to the pits quickly after his back wheels catch fire during first practice for the Mexican Grand Prix.
Rosberg braked late into a corner and overheated his brakes, causing the fire to happen at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.
The German was fastest at the time but the incident meant he ended the session, which was topped by Max Verstappen, in sixth place.
