|Damon Hill was the 1996 Formula One world champion. He was born in London on September 17, 1960, and is the son of the late, two time Formula One World Champion Graham Hill.
In 1996 while driving for Williams, Hill won the Formula One World Championship title, becoming the first son of a Formula One champion to win the championship himself. Taking 8 wins and never qualifying off the front row, Hill enjoyed by far his best season. Despite a World Championship, Hill was dropped by Williams for the following season to the outrage of fans and media alike.
As world champion Hill was in high demand, but surprisingly signed to the unfancied Arrows team. His title defence in 1997 proved unsuccessful. The car was generally uncompetitive, it was clear that Arrows could not provide Hill with the kind of success that he craved.
For 1998 he switched to Jordan to partner Ralf Schumacher. At Spa he took Jordan's first ever win, leading home his team-mate in a 1-2 in drenching conditions.
This picture shows Damon Hill driving the Jordan 199 car in the 1999 season, his final season in Formula One.
