How Formula E's title contenders were upstaged in London

The penultimate stop on Formula E's world tour took in London's ExCeL, where the championship contenders were upstaged by two first-time winners in 2022. Andretti’s Jake Dennis kept the home fires burning in the first race as Venturi’s Lucas di Grassi claimed the second, but two consistent finishes mean its advantage Stoffel Vandoorne heading to the Seoul finale.

As Formula E’s eighth season gets into the business end of the calendar, one could be forgiven for assuming that all four title contenders would be on top form. On-off points leader Stoffel Vandoorne set course for London’s docklands with an 11-point lead over Edoardo Mortara, with Mitch Evans a further five points back and Jean-Eric Vergne on the periphery too.

That all of them at some point dropped the ball for varying reasons meant that the championship’s complexion changed completely ahead of the Seoul finale – also handing an opportunity to the more unfancied players who arrived at the ExCeL to provide a surprise exhibition.
