Damon Hill

Damon Hill OBE

Add To Speakers List

Only a small number of people can claim to have reached the pinnacle of motorsport by becoming Formula 1 World Champion, but Damon Hill can count himself among them. After years of hard work and near misses, in 1996 he achieved his dream by winning the Formula 1 World Driver’s Championship. Now, he spends his time working as a pundit for Sky Sports F1 and as one of the most popular motorsport speakers around, regularly shares stories with audiences from his time on the track.

Motorsport is in Damon’s blood, and he followed in his father’s footsteps. The late Graham Hill was also a Formula 1 world champion, 30 years before Damon achieved the same, making the pair the first-ever father and son duo to both win the accolade.  

But Damon’s journey to the top was not without conflict. Starting out in motorcycle racing, he came late to motorsport, making his Formula 1 debut in 1992 for Brabham aged 32. After an impressive rookie season, a year later he moved to Williams, at the time one of the best teams in the sport. During this period he regularly fought for wins and podiums, achieving 22 victories in the sport. He also forged a huge rivalry with Michael Schumacher, regularly coming together on the track. This culminated in a now-famous clash during the final race of the 1994 season, which resulted in Schumacher winning the title by one point and leaving Damon trophyless. 

At his speaking events, Damon can discuss how he bounced back from this devastating blow to come back stronger and win the title in 1996.

Since retiring as a driver in 1999, Damon has continued to work in the sport spending time as the President of the British Racing Drivers’ Club. In this role, he secured a deal for Silverstone to host Formula 1 races for 17 years.

Recently, he’s been providing his expertise and insights as a television pundit, attending some of the biggest races in Formula 1 and providing analysis for the millions watching at home. 

When working as one of the UK’s most high-profile motorsport speakers, Damon always thrills audiences with his high-octane anecdotes from the life of a racing driver. Plus, he has the ability to inspire, using his own career setbacks to demonstrate that success can still be achieved.
