As predictions go, Eddie Irvine's was about as wide of the mark as you could get. After Damon Hill's win in the season opener at the Australian Grand Prix, Irvine said: ''He isn't good enough to win the World Championship. I just don't believe Damon has it inside him to become world champion. When you look at him, it's just not there, is it?. Damon was buried by Jacques in Australia. To be honest, Jacques made him look silly. Jacques looked better in every session, even though Damon has got years more Formula One experience.He drove circles round Damon." Hill went on to win the drivers' title that season.
