So a 'giant lizard' casually strolled across the Singapore GP track

Singapore - During the third practice session of the Singapore GP, one of the weirdest moments on track occurred when a giant lizard was spotted on track

The metre-long monitor lizard was captured on camera casually strolling across the Marina Bay circuit during the third and final practice session.

Red Bull driver Max Verstappen can be heard shouting over the team's radio: "There's a giant lizard on the track!"

Finding composure

Having regained his composure, Verstappen produced the second fastest time of the session - a mere 0.059 sec behind Nico Rosberg.

Despite the lizard affecting the session, Rosberg's quickest lap of 1min44:352 seconds was enough to propel him to the top of the time sheets at the end of the session.

We've already seen a cat, beaver, birds and now a lizard this season. Can you name other bizarre instances of animals on track? Email us or get in touch via Facebook and Twitter.
