Despite winning the championship, he was not retained by the team for {{F1|1997}} because Williams favoured German [[Heinz-Harald Frentzen]]. Being linked to {{Ferrari-CON}}, {{Benetton-CON}} and {{McLaren-CON}} for a seat, he instead decided to sign for the {{Arrows-CON}} team. Instead, the 1997 season with Arrows turned out to be uncompetitive for Hill. At the end of the season, he signed for the {{Jordan-CON}} team in {{F1|1998}}, winning at the wet-weather [[1998 Belgian Grand Prix]]. Hill announced his retirement from Formula One racing at the end of the {{F1|1999}} season.
