Best of Social: 2019 HKT Hong Kong E-Prix

After the dust has settled on an historic and hectic race in Hong Kong, we look back at the very best of social from Formula E's 50th race.

Who's blaming who? 

In the dying moments of the race, Envision Virgin Racing's Sam Bird lurched for DS Techeetah's Andre Lotterer in a bid to take the lead. Colliding with the back of race leader Lotterer, Bird punctured his tyre finishing the German's race and, ultimately, his chances of clinching his maiden win. While Bird took to the podium, his time at the top was short lived after the FIA penalised him, handing the win to Venturi's Edoardo Mortara. 

Payne backs Poleman

Hitting up Formula E in Hong Kong, ex-One Direction member Liam Payne was spotted outside HWA Racelab's garage. Catching up with him, we learnt that he's a fan of Poleman and HWA driver Stoffel Vandoorne fan and, err, that he once bought a 'magical' Harry Potter car.

Half Century

Celebrating 50 races in Hong Kong was Formula E Founder and CEO Alejandro Agag and CEO of title sponsors ABB Ulrich Spiesshofer. And what a ride it's been. The best news? We're just getting started. Watch this space.

And the winner is...

After the dust had settled on Hong Kong's Harbourfront, it was Mortara who clinched both his and Venturi's maiden win in the series. As for Team Principal Susie Wolff, she became the first female team boss to secure victory in the series. Many congratulations, Venturi but will we see a repeat performance in Sanya?
