But at this weekend’s Singapore Grand Prix, we had a different type of track invader, as the grid’s youngest driver was faced with Godzilla.
Okay, well, not exactly Godzilla (according to Max Verstappen’s race engineer) but a pretty big reptile nonetheless.

The monitor lizard that just strolled casually on to the track was inches away from Verstappen’s Red Bull during Free Practice One, but thankfully neither Verstappen nor the lizard were hurt.
Our scaly friend then scampered off to get out of the way and didn’t disrupt practice any further.
