Strictly speaking, last weekend's ABB FIA Formula E race in Paris was not the electric championship's first wet race.
This is because the event in Hong Kong earlier this season was actually labelled a wet race by the FIA, despite all of the rainfall occurring before the start. The track was damp, certainly, but it wasn't anywhere near what might be considered a fully wet, rain-affected race.
Paris absolutely was. Just over a third of the way into the race, the heavens opened onto the Circuit des Invalides. A race that had started in cold sunshine had got darker very quickly - probably too quickly for Nissan e.dams, which had a one-two lead disappear - and suddenly the heavy clouds were furiously unloading their contents upon the French capital.
