Experts have yet to figure out what caused the fire

During the Formula 1 race weekend in Austria on the Red Bull Ring, the McLaren Senna supercar caught fire. The fire was preceded by a demonstration race Senna, which was driven by ex-pilot of Formula 1 Gerhard Berger.

Eyewitnesses managed to photograph how the supercar, full of smoke, returns to the pits, and flames burst from under the stern. Representatives of McLaren in a conversation with journalists said that they were aware of what had happened, but refused to comment on the incident until they had additional information.

This is the second such accident for the model Senna. In January 2019, YouTube-blogger Salomondrin videotaped how his supercar burned, bought just 11 days before. The driver said that the car caught fire while driving – a fire started in the engine compartment. He could not put out the flames on his own and called the firemen.

McLaren Senna was released in a limited edition of 500 copies worth $ 1 million each. It is driven by a twin-turbo eight with 800 horsepower, which provides acceleration from standstill to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds. The maximum speed of the car is 340 kilometers per hour.
