Monitor lizard invades S’pore F1 race track

Thank goodness it wasn't the otter family.

A monitor lizard became a road hazard after making a run for it at the Singapore Grand Prix street circuit during final practice on Saturday, Sept 18, 2016.

The huge monitor lizard wandered onto the track just as the racing cars were zipping past.

“There’s a giant lizard on the track,” exclaimed the Red Bull driver Max Verstappen laughingly as he passed Turn Three. “I am not joking.”

“Face to face with Godzilla,” says one of his Red Bull engineers.

In the 2015 race, a track intruder invaded the track during the race.

Briton Yogvitam Pravin Dhokia, 27, entered the track to take a video of the race between Turn 13 and Turn 14.

He was jailed six weeks for committing a rash act.

Glad it wasn’t the otters invading the track though.
