This is a first-hand insight into the life of a Formula One driver both on the track and off. More than an account of Damon Hill’s 1994 season, this is also an in-depth study of the Formula One driver’s world, from the soles of his flame-proof boots to the heady feelings which come with success in this most dangerous and dramatic of sports. In it, Hill recalls the days when his father, Graham, a double world champion, made motor racing an integral part of family life, a sport Damon initially spurned in favour of motor bikes. In 1994, Hill had to face tragedy with the deaths of Roland Ratzenberger and Ayrton Senna, his friend and teammate, at Imola. In the aftermath, Damon got back in his car and finished sixth. A few weeks later, in Barcelona, he came first. It was both a fitting tribute to Senna and a much-needed morale boost for everyone in the Williams team. The book is illustrated by Jon Nicholson, a long-time friend of Hill’s.
