Damon Hill and the story of the 1994 Australian Grand Prix

The 1994 Formula 1 season was one of the most controversial, dramatic and tragic in the history of the sport.

Following the loss of three-time Formula 1 world champion Ayrton Senna at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix, his Williams teammate Damon Hill took the title fight to Benetton's Michael Schumacher.

Schumacher led Hill be one point entering the season-ending Australian Grand Prix in Adelaide. Their collision midway through the race gave Schumacher his first championship win, in another dramatic twist to a season of extreme highs and lows.

On his return to Adelaide at the 2024 Repco Adelaide Motorsport Festival, Hill reflected on the drama of the 1994 season at key locations on the Adelaide Street Circuit – the grid, Senna Chicane and the scene of the crash with Schumacher.
