Motor Sport News - - British Grand Prix -

“I re­mem­ber go­ing to the 1994 race with my dad, John, and we camped across from the gate. We couldn’t af­ford grand­stand seats so we sat on the bank­ing and watched every sec­ond [as Wil­liams-re­nault man Damon Hill beat Jean Alesi’s Fer­rari]. The at­mos­phere was so happy and ju­bi­lant. That’s some­thing about the Bri­tish GP, see­ing all the fans decked out in team wear, and it’s not from one team, it’s from all teams. They don’t sup­port a driver, they sup­port the sport as a whole, even if it may not be in the best place right now.”
