Will Power Sebring Fire
Will Power puts out his own car fire at Sebring testing.
Apparently the safety crew wasn't moving fast enough for him.

I like the reaction of the fire safety crewman just kind of standing around watching Will put out the fire.

RE: Will Power Sebring Fire
nice to see the drivers show some concern for the team.

it reminds me of this incident from two years ago:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yMXFNBum5uI
sharp pulled over where he knew a fire truck was, but pulled over on the wrong side so the truck had to wait for a caution. the volunteer corner worker didn't have to wait, though, and had the fire under control before the fire truck got there. a cameraman got a close up of that volunteer later in the race and the commentators gave him a shout-out.

Seems like Montoya should have put out the jet truck fire at Daytona a few weeks ago. What a slacker.

That track marshal was hardly moving. I know they are all volunteers and all, but they should at least be able to move reasonably quickly.

As for Scott Sharp, he was driving a Ferrari. They should have fitted a gps fire truck locator to it's sat nav as it's just a matter of when, not if.
