Senna: The man who changed the course of the sport

Ayrton Senna known as the Brazilian hero – he remains amongst the best in history of Formula 1.

His first day in F1 didn’t start as he wished – he had poor qualifying at the Brazilian GP finishing P17 – five second behind the pole sitter Elio de Angelis.

He also had difficult race as the turbo of his car failed on lap 8 and Senna retired from the race.

However, the Brazilian showed his class at Monte Carlo, where he shined in the rain, if the race continued to the end, he could have beat Alain Prost and win.

However, it didn’t took long, it was Lotus who signed Senna for 1985, it’s where it all started for him.

His first win came in Portugal back in 1985, another wet race where Senna was just unstoppable.

A race to remember forever – finishing the race at least one lap ahead of every car expect the 2nd place Alboreto.

Years later in 1987 he joined McLaren-Honda – where he won three championships driving for this team.

His battle with Prost goes down in history as the best rivalry in history of this sport.
