Why Formula E's London return delivered anarchy in the UK

Formula E landed for a London E-Prix for the first time since 2016, at the indoor-outdoor circuit around the ExCeL. Featuring the birth of renewed title pushes, a long-awaited maiden win and the second race's controversy, the round proved to be an exhibition of the electric series' anarchic nature.

The latest Formula E-hatched unconventional world-first for motorsport with a part-indoor, part-outdoor circuit. The long-awaited return of London to the electric calendar. A brilliant second victory for series rookie Jake Dennis to tee-up a genuine but totally unforeseen title challenge. A maiden victory for Alex Lynn, which arrived so soon after the Briton learned that his services would no longer be required by Mahindra Racing for the 2022 season.

All these remarkable story threads will be remembered in good time for their own small place in racing history. But the masses of internet comments posted in response to last Sunday’s race at the ExCeL would have you believe there was only one talking point.
