First on the grid at the French Grand Prix last weekend, second in the race and third place in the drivers' championship, Damon Hill's career is blossoming. The Englishman chased the Frenchman Alain Prost to the line at Magny-Cours and Silverstone may be the stage for a reversal. This year spectators will have an extra view of Hill, Prost and the other Formula One drivers in a parade at 11.15am on Sunday when the drivers will be chauffeured around the circuit in open-topped cars.
