Damon Hill: My Championship Year, by Damon Hill and Timothy Collings. Little, Brown & Co, £25.
This is the official story of Damon Hill’s championship year. Written by the man himself, aided by the Daily Telegraph’s Formula One correspondent Tim Collings, the book is a personal and revealing account of a difficult, yet successful final season with Williams.
The format is a little bland, with the chapters simply titled after each race, but this is still a good book. Jon Nichol’s superb collection of photographs complement the text, giving a great insight into the life of a driver under pressure, working for the best team in the business. It all comes together to make this the perfect Christmas gift for any Damon fan. DS
