Damon rejoins Williams

Williams’ 1996 world champion Damon Hill will celebrate the 20-year anniversary of his title with the team at the 2016 Autosport International Show.

Williams will be a major feature of the show in January, with the team’s eight-metre-tall track hospitality unit constructed inside the Birmingham NEC, next to the Autosport Live Stage. There will also be a selection of Heritage cars displayed at the stand, including Hill’s title-winning FW18.

Hill first tested for Williams in 1991 and was promoted to a race seat in 1993, alongside Alain Prost. He contested the championship with Michael Schumacher over the following years before clinching it himself in 1996.

He won eight of the 16 races and, with a further four wins in the hands of team mate Jacques Villeneuve, the FW18 became the most successful Williams of all time.
