This McLaren 12c reportedly caught on fire at a race this week. We know McLaren wanted to compete with Ferrari, but maybe they shouldn't have been so rigorous.

Apparently caught fire during the refueling process at a race.

Needless to say, it might need a few new parts.

Large blob of melted plastic is the intake, left hand side is the fuel throat, cables and whatnot is the wiring assembly.

The cause has yet to be determined.

It looks like damage is minor, but that's not to say it won't be expensive.

Minor is relative, if any of that melted plastic made it down the induction path...oh boy.
