Many people know the story of how Ayrton Senna talked of having an out-of-body experience when he drove that famous quali lap at Monaco in 1988. Perhaps fewer know the one about how Ayrton helped Damon Hill to experience that extraordinary transitory state in the greatest drive of his life at the 1994 Japanese Grand Prix.

I like Damon very much, and regard him as one of the sport’s finest gentlemen and a friend, perhaps because as a fan I felt the cruelty of his father, two-time world champion Graham Hill’s, death in a plane crash on a foggy November night back in 1975.
