    Video caption: Formula E: GB's Sam Bird wins dramatic Hong Kong E-Prix

    British driver Sam Bird seemed to have taken the win in Hong Kong – before a five-second time penalty handed the win to Venturi’s Edoardo Mortara instead.

    Bird had crossed the line ahead of his Swiss rival but was dropped back to sixth after a collision with Andre Lotterer. The German had been in the lead until he was hit by Bird, later describing Bird’s move as “disgusting”.

    Former Formula 1 star Stoffel Vandoorne had taken pole in damp conditions but was one of eight drivers forced to retire, the most in Formula E history, during its 50th race.

  6. What is Formula E?

    The FIA Formula E Championship is the world’s first all-electric single seater series and is in its fifth season of competition.

    The 13-race calendar started in December and will run until July, finishing with two races in two days in New York City.

    A new car has been introduced this season that has a longer battery life, eliminating the need to change cars during the race, while BMW and Nissan have joined the rapidly growing list of manufacturers.

    The 45-minute long races feature a number of ways to add extra excitement, with drivers able to use ‘Attack Mode’ and ‘Fan Boost’ to help overtaking while there are bonus points for pole position and fastest lap.
