Hong Kong - "That was a really crazy race - I'm finding it hard to process what just happened," said Virgin DS Racing's Sam Bird to the Formula E website, still fresh from the race.

After his first victory of Season Four of the FIA Formula E Championship in Hong Kong, Bird worked his way to the top despite a hefty eight-second penalty.

Rosberg said on the Formula E website: "I've been following Formula E - it has an amazing future, I'm very interested."
