FE: The inaugural Formula E championship was decided in the last 15 seconds of the season

It’s moments like this that make live sport so compelling – the motor racing equivalent of a penalty shootout.

Sebastien Buemi had to finish Sunday’s race 5th or higher to win the championship but was stuck running 6th in the dying stages. With only a few corners remaining, Buemi threw caution to the wind and made one last desperate attempt to pass Bruno Senna for the position he needed. In doing so he ensured the championship would be decided in single thrilling moment. Buemi ‘risked it for a biscuit’ but had to watch the title slip from his fingertips within sight of the chequered flag. Agonising stuff.

A Hollywood finish was the perfect way to wrap up a season of close exciting racing.‪‪
