Damon Hill today hinted that the French Grand Prix may have been his last race in Formula One.

Speaking after another disappointing afternoon - where he suffered a puncture after being hit by an Arrows in the pits and had a misfire set in while touring behind the Safety Car - Hill admitted that he may not get another chance behind the wheel of an F1 car. Speaking to ITV's Louise Goodman, Hill said that he hoped it wasn't his last appearance, but feared that it may.

"I could carry on if I wanted to," Hill added, "but I wouldn't want to be in a position where Eddie's not getting the points."

Team boss Eddie Jordan said that the decision to stand down would be left entirely to his driver, with no pressure for him to decide either way: "I'm aware of what he's said," admitted Jordan, "and everybody has to respect his wishes. Whatever they are, I'll support him."
