Heidfeld tried to follow Bird past Rosenqvist when the Briton nicked the lead, and although he failed he shadowed his team-mate throughout.
Red Bull Formula 1 protege Pierre Gasly caught the pair at the end, and the three concertinaed through the final corner - with Gasly throwing his Renault e.dams around the outside of Heidfeld. He did make it across the finish line though, in fourth place.
But Gasly made a mistake and ran wide and damaged the front end of the auto.
Bird held on to win from Jean-Eric Vergne by 1.3 seconds and the Frenchman's Techeetah team mate Stéphane Sarrazin.
Daniel Abt once again out qualified his team-mate Lucas di Grassi, but the Brazilian will be hoping he can make progress through the field from ninth in an attempt to make the most of Sebastien Buemi's absence this weekend.
