The BMW i Andretti Motorsport Team ended the fifth race of the season in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship in Valencia with an eighth place for Jake Dennis that came about in curious circumstances. Issues with calculation of the energy amount saw most cars run out of power on a tumultuous final lap. These included the BMW iFE.21 driven by Dennis, who was initially classified in eleventh position but then moved up to eighth after numerous retroactive disqualifications. The result saw him score the first points of his Formula E career. After a great qualifying session, Maximilian Günther started the race in second place on the front row but retired early on the wet and slippery circuit.
