Sports Personality: F1 driver Damon Hill wins 1994 BBC prize

As BBC Sport celebrates 60 years of Sports Personality of the Year, we visit the archive vault to remember the achievements of all the previous winners.

In 1994, Formula One driver Damon Hill was named Sports Personality of the Year.

This season would be known as one of the most controversial to date, as Hill was pipped to the World Championship on the final day by Michael Schumacher.

Neither Hill or Schumacher finished the final race of the season in Australia due to a collision. It is heavily disputed as to whether there was any wrong-doing on Schumacher's part in the crash. It did however, result in Schumacher winning the title by a single point.

Hill's team chose not to protest againt the title win as they were still dealing with the unexpected death of fellow driver, Ayrton Senna.

BBC Sports Personality of the Year will celebrate its 60th show when the 2013 event is broadcast live from Leeds on Sunday 15 December from 1940 GMT on BBC One. Further coverage on the BBC Sport website and Radio 5 live.
