I couldn’t believe Mr Frankel’s sanctimonious editorial last month in which, referring to Damon Hill, he remarked “History will be kinder to him than we have been.” What twaddle.

What more stark contrast could there be to his late father, maybe not the quickest driver out there but a racer from head to toe? It is he to whom history will be most kind.
