How Jake Dennis’ struggles turned him into a Formula E frontrunner

Having emerged as one of Formula E’s strongest drivers in his one-and-a-half seasons in the championship, Jake Dennis cemented his place in the series with a breakout maiden season. But it's not always been smooth sailing for the Briton

If Joe Lycett was ever to invite Jake Dennis onto an episode of Channel 4's Travel Man, the viewers would be privy to an anxious ride through a world of travel-based nightmares involving numerous delays, luggage mishaps and missed train stops.

Those misfortunes have earned Dennis a proxy following through the "Jake Dennis Struggles" social media accounts – where his trials and tribulations are laid bare. Those struggles also extend to forgotten drive-through coffees and misuse of household appliances – where, on one occasion, Dennis slathered the insides of his dishwasher with washing-up liquid and ended up with an impromptu student union-grade foam party in his kitchen.
