yeah I know what you mean but it aint like motogp is it? the driver can't make a slow car win

Damon Hill - Hungary - Arrows...

Nearly won..20p oil seal failed - had a minute lead over everyone in a car that was bad.

Just off the top of my head - it's entirely possible.

ah now that was tyres

I really rated damon but that was not all him

Odd - as his teammate did badly as did all the other bridgestone shod drivers.

The top 6 throughout the year was dominated by the Goodyear drivers.

That was due to Hill's smooth driving style and a very progressive engine - not as powerfull - but the delivery was very linear.

Hungary benefits from a smooth and flowing driving style. Hill learnt that from racing bikes.

cant remember much about the race other than the drive from damon... come to think about it the last time I was up to see a flyaway race was 96 watching him here at suzuka

Expecting complaints being put in about Sato, Villeneuve and Fisichella.

Sato - for being a menace to any other car on the track.
Villeneuve - Pushing Montoya off the track and causing the accident and safety car
Fisichella - Moving over twice to try and block Raikkonen
