well ill spoil it. Senna got hit in turn 1 and was subsequently taken out. My theory is that he had a full load of KERS on board because he knew that schumi was closing fast and he would need it.

And theres a lot of energy in a fully charged KERS pack, and they cant transport it charged. So they have to discharge it after the race. Something went wrong and the KERS pack discharged uncontrolled and ignited something near by and the blaze took off from there.

As someone stated previously the batteries they use are fairly volatile. So its not all that surprising
