Damon Hill in Monaco

by Alex Harmer on 19th May 2014

In the run-up to the Monaco Grand Prix this weekend Damon Hill took to the streets of the principality behind the wheel of Renault's RS01.

The RS01 was the first turbo car to race in F1 and was introduced at the 1977 British Grand Prix. But despite the significance of the car – and the sound it makes through the tunnel – the thing that really stands out is Hill's enthusiasm for the circuit.

The 1996 world champion was able to step out of the cockpit without looking back when he retired in 1999, but you can hear the excitement in his voice as he navigates the classic venue.
