Abt disqualified from Sunday's Hong Kong ePrix!

Formula E 2017/18 All you need to know ahead of the new season

The agony of a second-place finish didn't take long to turn into ecstacy of victory for Felix Rosenqvist of Mahindra Racing.

The 2016 F1 champion, who walked away from the sport last season after winning his title, is in Hong Kong this weekend for the opening rounds of the 2017-2018 Formula E season.

After venturing to Hong Kong this weekend in an ambassadorial role for clothing giant Hugo Boss, Rosberg admitted he would be keen to get involved in Formula E in some way in the future. After a delayed start behind the Safety Car, Rosenqvist slid down the order in the opening lap but fought his way back up to the top by the end of the race.

"We haven't really had an idea of what our M4 vehicle is like on a street circuit until now, but this weekend really showed that we have the pace to be very competitive".

However, Rosberg stressed any involvement in Formula E would not see him get behind the wheel of a vehicle and return to racing out on-track.

Formula E's popularity is growing rapidly as it enters only its fourth season and having a driver of the ilk of Nico Rosberg competing would be a massive coup for the sport.

"No [I don't miss racing], for me it is really done".

The New Zealand driver benefited after the victor of race two, German Daniel Abt, was disqualified following a post-race inspection of his Audi auto. "What we are apparently suspected of is an administrative mistake in the car's passport that didn't give us any advantage at all".

"I know quite a lot [about Formula E], I have been following it. We could have had even better results from the whole weekend", Mahindra Racing team principal Dilbagh Gill said.

"It goes from the race vehicle into the road auto of the future that we are all going to be driving".

If that's not all, Audi has been fined an additional 5000 Euros for a separate infringement.

The next race is scheduled for January 13 in Marrakesh, Morocco.
