Williams investigating KERS failure

Pastor Maldonado's preparations for final practice were dealt a blow when his car suffered a KERS failure, spewing smoking into the air...

Less than three hours ahead of Saturday's final practice for the German GP, fire marshals rushed to the scene as Maldonado's FW35 pumped smoke into the garage.

The team has confirmed that it was a KERS related issue and that no one was hurt.

The team's statement read: "At 08.30 this morning the Williams F1 Team suffered a KERS failure on Pastor Maldonado's car.

"The car was in the garage at the time. The resulting smoke was contained quickly and efficiently by the team and circuit fire marshals. No personnel were injured.

"The team are currently investigating the cause of the failure, and assessing any further damage to Pastor's car.

"More information will be released once the team are in a position to do so."
