Motor Racing: FIA Council summons Hill

DAMON HILL and three other drivers have been summoned to appear before a special FIA World Motor Sport Council meeting in Paris on 26 July following incidents in the British Grand Prix last Sunday.

The other three are Michael Schumacher, Mika Hakkinen and Rubens Barrichello. Hill, who won the race, stopped during his slow-down lap to collect a British flag from a track marshall and that broke FIA rules. Schumacher was reprimanded and fined pounds 16,000 for failing to submit to a five- second penalty and ignoring a black flag. Hakkinen and Barrichello collided within sight of the chequered flag.

Gerhard Berger, representing the Drivers' Association, inspected the Imola track where Ayrton Senna and Roland Ratzenberger died and said he was confident safety work could be completed in time for the Italian Grand Prix to be run in September.
