Abstract: We study the Chow motive (with rational coefficients) of a hypersurface $ X$ in the projective space by using the variety $ F(X)$ of $ l$-dimensional planes contained in $ X$. If the degree of $ X$ is sufficiently small, we show that the primitive part of the motive of $ X$ is the tensor product of a direct summand in the motive of a suitable complete intersection in $ F(X)$ and the $ l$-th twist $ \mathbb{Q} (-l)$ of the Lefschetz motive.
