But Kimi was pitting, and who knows what would have happened in the pits? You can also argue that it was the stopping, not the going that made Fisi's car ignite. Often, F1 cars don't like being stationary, to the point that they overheat, sometimes catastrophically. Let's not forget that Fisichella's car showed no signs of doing anything except kicking out the jams while it was rolling.

The Jordan engineers were probably rejoicing, as an F1 car is made to last the race distance!
