An article I was reading talked about Damon Hill having 22 Grand Prix wins. But I can only find 21. Who is right? asked Richard Clarke

I think you may be looking just at Damon's career with Williams - he won 21 GPs for them between 1993 and 1996, including eight when he won the world title in '96. But 22 is right, as he also won one race for Jordan - the rain-hit Belgian GP of 1998.

That was Jordan's first victory as a constructor, and their day was made even more memorable by the fact that Ralf Schumacher, Hill's team-mate, finished second.

Jordan won only three more races, two courtesy of Heinz-Harald Frentzen in 1999, and one by Giancarlo Fisichella, in a chaotic Brazilian GP in 2003.
