An Englishman by the name of Jenson Button visiting Montreal’s scenic Parc Jean-Drapeau lit a fire using his McLaren’s Honda engine. Button was racing in the Canadian Grand Prix on the park’s Circuit Gilles Villeneuve when fiery engine trouble forced him to retire on lap 11.

No drivers or marshals were harmed in the starting of this car-b-que, however, neither were any marshmallows. Button retired from the race shortly afterwards.

Visitors to the island park will have to find a less volatile flame for cooking.
