Damon Hill on the hill… What you can’t do in a McLaren


I spent yesterday storming up the famous hill-climbing course at Goodwood with former F1 champion, Damon Hill. And yes, the headline will no doubt read ‘Hill On The Hill’ when the article appears in the FT.

We had been provided with a McLaren 650S – a £220,000 supercar of quite epic proportions. However, what bemused both Damon and myself was the fact the McLaren was too good to wheelspin!

The photographers wanted tyre smoke but despite out best efforts, the 650S just refused to oblige.

No such worries with the DS 3. It may only sport a humble diesel engine but it does have a proper handbrake and no traction control. So, you can do so much more in a Citroen!
