Formula E returns this weekend for the second race in two weeks after Hong Kong hosted the 50th round of the all-electric championship earlier this month. 

The Formula E circus now heads to China for the first race in the country since season two, though this time it takes place at a new circuit in a different location, with Sanya playing host.

Five different drivers have claimed victory from the opening five races so far in 2018/19 with Briton’s Sam Bird currently heading the standings, though just seven points separating the top five in the championship.
