Britain’s last Formula 1 world champion Damon Hill will take to the commentary box this weekend when he joins ITV Sport’s James Allen as co-commentator for the Hungarian Grand Prix.

The 1996 world title winner is stepping into Martin Brundle’s shoes alongside James while Martin is away on holiday.

Hill will be providing expert comment and analysis during ITV Sport’s live coverage of the qualifying and race action from the Hungaroring.

“It’s a real pleasure to have Damon Hill in the commentary box with James Allen whilst Martin is away on holiday,” said Gerard Lane, editor of ITV’s F1 coverage.

“As a former world champion it will be fantastic to hear what he has to say in a season where there is a British driver leading the championship.”

The 22-time grand prix winner will be returning to the scene of some of the most memorable performances of his 115-race F1 career.

He took his first grand prix win at the circuit for Williams in 1993 and followed it up with another victory two years later.

And he came tantalisingly close to pulling off a stunning upset in 1997, when a heartbreakingly late hydraulic problem robbed him of victory for the unfancied Arrows team after an inspired drive.

His impressive record there also boasted four further points-scoring finishes.

Wicked news. got a lot of respect for Damon - was my hero when he was driving!
Career, Wife, Mortgage... my sig was better when it listed guitars and PC's and stuff!
