Heidfeld had a hard second race initially due to being held up by Felix s first corner incident, and then a software issue which caused him to temporarily stop on track and rejoin the race almost a lap down.

Mahindra Racing enjoyed a win in the Formula E season-opening Hong Kong ePrix with Felix Rosenqvist finishing second, only to elevated, after victor Daniel Abt's Audi was excluded from the results due a technical infringement.

Rosenqvist, who had a 14th place finish in Saturday's opening round, grabbed pole on Sunday morning on the Hong Kong streets.

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. We didn't really have 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.

- Twice as nice; Felix Rosenqvist's win in Hong Kong marks his second career victory - after picking-up a maiden win in Berlin previous year. He also managed to finish third in the Drivers Standings last season with three other podium appearances. It's not the way you want to win and I don't feel like I've won the race.

German Abt took the chequered flag in his Audi after Swiss Eduoardo Mortara spun in his Venturi entry with a couple of laps remaining from the lead of the race and gifted the win to his rival.

Asked if he missed racing, Rosberg said: "No, for me it is really done".

But a post-race technical inspection revealed that the FIA security stickers stamped on the Audi's inverters and motors were not those referenced on the car's technical passport. Audi said the issue was apparently an administrative mistake that gave them no advantage on the racetrack.

"We made a few mistakes, but we also got a lot of things right", he said after the race two victory.

Round two of the series takes place in Marrakesh, Morocco in mid-January.
