F1: Demo Red Bull F1 car catches fire (+video)

A Red Bull Racing RB7 Formula 1 car of 2011 unexpectedly caught fire during a demonstration run in Chelyabinsk, Russia.

The show was held ahead of the first Grand Prix of Russia later this year in Sochi.

British GP3 driver Alex Lynn was behind the wheel of the RB7 when a fire started in the engine bay.

Lynn immediately stopped the car, and the Red Bull mechanics quickly put out the blaze with fire extinguishers. No one was injured.
