Question: Who would you like to interview and what would you ask? 

Graham Hill: Well he’s dead, but I’d certainly want to interview Gandhi.I’m really interested about growth, so I might ask him about growth.

It sort of seems like our entire society is built on growth. And yet the globe is a finite thing; there’s only so many people we can put on it. There’s only so many resources.Our whole society is built on this trajectory that is infinite, but it’s not infinite. So I’m not sure if Gandhi would be able to answer that question, but . . . (Laughter).

Graham Hill would love to sit down with Gandhi.
