Oliver Rowland moved briefly into first place in the Formula E championship standings on Saturday with a first race win of the season but missed out on another when he ran out of battery on the final lap on Sunday.

The 30-year-old from Penistone finished second in the first race in Misano, Italy - moving up from fifth in qualifying - but was then moved up to first due to a disqualification. It was a fourth successive podium after the events in Saudi Arabia, São Paulo and Tokyo.

That put him five points clear in first place but he fell down to third the following day.

Leading into the final lap of the electric car race, having qualified tenth, he ran out of power due to a miscalculation by his team.

He is now nine points off top, after seven of 16 races.

Tommaso Volpe, managing director and team principal, Nissan Formula E Team: "Overall it has been a very positive weekend for us. Oli performed amazingly, taking the official race win, our first since Nissan took full control of the team. Sunday was of course a frustrating one, a very small mistake cost us a potential fifth consecutive podium, which I think was definitely within reach. However, he drove very well again, so big apologies to him for this.”

Rowland added: “Overall we must be happy with our performance this weekend despite the frustrating end to to the second race. We've been in incredible form and to score 26 points at Misano is a positive thing. Our speed was great and the team got the strategy right in both races, so this is something we'll look to keep up in the coming races. “Unfortunately, we had an issue at the start which caused a problem with the lap counter, meaning it thought we had one fewer lap to race than we actually did. We were so close to another win, but we're proud of what we've achieved here and will continue to fight hard."
