Motor racing: Hill's agony should only last to end of season

Perhaps it just wasn't what Damon Hill expected yesterday. Certainly it was outrageously over the top, even by Monaco's standards: a parade of celebs and wannabe celebs in costumes you can only assume were discarded by Elton John and Madonna.

Motor racing: Walkinshaw moves to calm Hill's frustration

Contrasting moods, contrasting aspirations. Heinz-Harald Frentzen, suddenly a Formula One race winner and suddenly relaxed and oozing confidence in anticipation of Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix.

Damon Hill, the reigning Formula One world champion, has warned his Arrows team that he will not stand for becoming an also-ran in the sport.

Rugby Union: Walkinshaw walks in

Tom Walkinshaw may not be much of a singer, but he certainly knows how to bring the Hills alive with the sweet sound of booming bank accounts.

Motor racing: Good news for Williams

Williams' pursuit of the Formula One world title will continue to be backed by Rothmans, who first formed their successful partnership with the Didcot-based team in 1994. The cigarette company has agreed to back Williams again next year.

Technical itch for Frentzen

David Tremayne says the Williams No 2 is struggling to find the cutting edge of F1

Testing time ahead for Frentzen

Heinz-Harald Frentzen made no bones about his performance in Sunday's Brazilian Grand Prix. "It was nothing sensational," he said of a race in which he trailed home in ninth place while his team-mate, Jacques Villeneuve, won convincingly.
