Edoardo Mortara finished second for Venturi ahead of Jaguar’s Mitch Evans.

Former F2 champion De Vries, said: “My first Formula E win, I’m still quite relaxed, I don’t know why but I am very pleased.

“We’ve been strong from the first practice session and to be able to translate it to the race was very satisfying.

Lynn closed the door on Bird who attempted the overtake on the inside, and Bird was furious in his cockpit as the two faced each other after the crash.
