HKT Hong Kong E-Prix Overview (warning: contains spoilers)
While British driver Sam Bird (DS Virgin Racing) clinched victory against all odds in Round One, an unexpected end to Round Two saw Audi Sport Abt Shaeffler driver Daniel Abt cross the line first, only to be stripped of his first ever victory in the series after Audi were found to have non-matching part numbers in the car's technical passport. Bad news for Audi but even worse news for Abt who was celebrating his 25th birthday.
