Not that kind of on fire, he literally was on fire.
The thin air at altitude in Mexico City is presenting problems teams have not seen since, well, since 1992. They have to run high downforce setups to compensate for the lower air density but there is little they can do about less air getting squeezed into the brake ducts.
The results are very high brake temperatures and very high top speeds, 360 km/h - 225 mph.
Add very slippery conditions due to rain and brand new asphalt and this race promises to be one not to miss.
