Hill critical of latest scandal to rock F1

"If that's exactly what was suggested then I don't think they were taking into account everyone involved. But then we don't know to what extent they expected Piquet to crash either."

"It's easy to get blasé about crashing in Formula One. There are a lot of very good safety precautions and they do everything they can to make drivers and spectators safe if there is an accident.

"But to deliberately have an accident, you are entering into the realms of the unknown. Nobody can predict what will happen if you do have a crash. So no, I've not heard of anything like that that I can recall.

"I think there have been suggestions in the past that if one driver from one team were to collide with another driver of another team, that might enhance the first team's chances of success.”

Firstly, Damon Hill was World Drivers' Champion and is currently the president of the British Racing Drivers' Club, which puts him in a pretty strong position to comment on the state of F1: a damn sight more so than any of us. And secondly, he wasn't issuing statement, he was being interviewed by the national broadcaster who clearly recognise his experience and status. Perhaps they couldn't remember where they'd written your phone number so couldn't call you for the interview.
