Testing ahead of any new season is often full of intrigue - though rarely for as extraordinary a reason as the fire that disrupted Formula E's group running at Valencia.

The Race Formula E Podcast dives straight into the drama, with Sam Smith and Andrew van de Burgt on hand to discuss the day-one pit fire that halted the test and all the major talking points from the running that did take place before and after.

That includes a look at the fast-charging pitstops trialled at Valencia ahead of the 2024 campaign and how their introduction has been received, plus the latest calendar tweaks expected in the coming weeks.

Jaguar driver Mitch Evans and Gary Paffett are among the Formula E figures on hand to talk about fast charging, while the podcast also hears from Porsche boss Florian Modlinger - who discusses his team's title ambitions.

The exit of team principal James Rossiter and where that leaves Maserati, the potential for a surprise return of the Mercedes name to Formula E, and who might be able to take the fight to the pre-eminent Jaguar- and Porsche-powered cars are also delved into.

The Race Formula E podcast is available free to subscribe to from all good podcast suppliers, including Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
