Motor Racing: Hill calls for more power

DAMON HILL has called for more power from his engine suppliers, Honda, so that his Jordan team can mount a serious world championship challenge this season.

Motor racing: Jordan hint Hill might quit

DAMON HILL will retire at the end of the season if he can no longer live with Formula One's pace-setters. That is the prediction of his team owner, Eddie Jordan.

FEW PERFORMERS can have been given such an introduction, even on the stage. "Damon Hill is the man who taught us how to win," Eddie Jordan told the invited audience.

As a rule, the only way to stay reasonably sane while watching This Is Your Life (BBC1) is to imagine how it would be if they invited the people who really know the subject. "Do you remember this voice?" Michael Aspel would ask. "You should. He was your best friend at school, but you haven't seen him since you ran off with his wife four years ago. Since then he's hit the bottle and lost his house, but tonight he's come all the way from his detox unit in Cornwall, just to administer the knee to the groin that you so richly deserve."

And here's to you, Mr Robinson

A COUPLE of years ago, the Daily Mail accused me of being a "champagne feminist", prompting a phone call from a friend who said it sounded fun and could she be one too. I'm not fond of champagne, as it happens, but I do enjoy a nice bottle of Chateau Musar from Lebanon or a Pinot Noir from Alsace. I suppose this qualifies me as a champagne feminist, socialist, republican, you name it. So what? I've never understood why left-wingers are supposed to like fish and chips with mushy peas (which I do) but not risotto with zucchini flowers.

Motor Racing: Jordan's driver delay

JORDAN'S PLAN to announce their driver line-up for next season at this weekend's Italian Grand Prix have been put back a fortnight because of the team's continuing contractual dispute over the services of Ralf Schumacher.

Motor Racing: Drivers query lack of safety car

A BELGIAN Grand Prix of unsurpassed drama confirmed the improbable emergence of a compelling spectacle and a new force in the sport from depressingly barren beginnings. Damon Hill's victory, a breakthrough for Jordan, eased the fears of Formula One's promoters that the championship would prove a cakewalk for McLaren-Mercedes, but it was the safety of drivers in the appalling conditions at Spa-Francorchamps that dominated thoughts in the aftermath of the race.
