Why Formula E's red-hot favourite is on the ropes

Pre-season testing suggested Audi would dominate Formula E on its arrival as a fully-fledged works team. Three races in, its reigning-champion lead driver has zero points.

Formula E's script has not been torn up, but its main character has been rapidly rewritten.

Lucas di Grassi was penned as the title favourite, but the Audi Sport Abt driver's championship challenge has not so much stalled as failed to start completely. Conversely, Felix Rosenqvist has quietly assumed the leading role, with two wins from three races.
