1996 world champion Damon Hill will return to the F1 paddock in 2012 as an expert television pundit.

The 51-year-old has signed up with Sky as part of the broadcaster's new split British broadcasting deal with the BBC.

Hill will appear on-screen as a pre and post-race pundit at ten of the 20 grands prix, including the season opener in Melbourne.

"It's a few years since I stopped driving but I've never stopped looking at F1 and never lost interest. It's a sport that I love," he said.
