The latest edition of The Autosport Podcast previews the 2017/18 Formula E season, which kicks off with a double-header in Hong Kong this weekend.

With Abt Audi and Lucas di Grassi looking supreme on race pace in pre-season testing, we ask if anyone can stop the combination making a winning start to the campaign.

Autosport’s Formula E correspondent Scott Mitchell and Glenn Freeman, who recently tested a DS Virgin car, join Edd Straw for an in-depth look at the new season.

As well as the arrival of Audi, we look at the influx of big-name drivers, including sportscar aces Andre Lotterer and Neel Jani.

We also discuss the challenge of driving the Formula E cars, and why those who dismiss them as easy-to-drive and slow are wide of the mark.
