Biography: Born in 1929, future F1 World Champion Hill didn’t actually get behind the wheel of a car until he was 24 years old. Graced with dashing good looks, charm and more than a little courage, blind faith and perseverance, he literally forced his way to the top of a sport not known for its accessibility to the common man. After cajoling and charming his way behind the wheel of a Lotus F1 car for his debut in 1958, Hill went on to be crowned Formula One World Champion twice; once in 1962 driving for BRM and in 1968 for Lotus. In 1969 he won the notoriously difficult Grand Prix at Monaco for a fifth time – a record that wouldn’t be beaten until 1993 by the equally brilliant Ayrton Senna. He was also the only man ever to win the Triple Crown: the F1 World Championship, the Indiananopolis 500 and Le Mans 24-hour race. Hill was killed in a plane crash in 1975. His son, Damon, went on to be a world champion F1 driver too.
