Damon Hill OBE

Damon Hill OBE is a British legend of motor racing and winner of the 1996 Formula One World Championship.

His father, Graham Hill, was also a racing driver who won the Formula One World Championship in 1962 and 1968.

In a racing career spanning 14 years, Damon Hill OBE raced in British Formula 3, Formula 3000, British Touring Car Championship and the prestigious Formula One. During his Formula One career, Damon raced with Williams, Jordan and Arrows teams.

Damon first joined Williams’ Formula One team as a test driver in 1991 but by 1993 was promoted to be a driver. The first of his 22 victories was at the 1993 Hungarian Grand Prix in a season he finished 3rd in the Championship.

The following two years saw Damon finish 2nd place and in 1996 he won the Formula One Championship, beating second place Jacque Villeneuve by 19 points.

During the mid-1990s, Damon was Michael Schumacher’s main rival for the Formula One Drivers’ Championship, which saw the two clash several times on and off the track. Their collision at the 1994 Australian Grand Prix gave Schumacher his first title by a single point.

Damon is known for his determination and it is his determination to succeed that gave him his break in the Williams’ Formula One team.

In 1999, Damon retired from racing and then spent five years as president of the British Racing Drivers’ Club – succeeding Sir Jackie Stewart. He now works as a commentator on Sky Sports’ award-winning coverage of Formula 1 and is a charity patron.
