May 1, 2018, marks the 24th anniversary of Ayrton Senna's tragic crash at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix that took the driver's life. He remains a Formula One icon today.
McLaren even pays tribute to the famous driver with its later hypercar – the Senna. He was with the team from 1988 to 1993 and won all three of his F1 Drivers' World Championships with the squad. “His focus, his unwavering determination to go beyond the limit that in itself then becomes an inspiration,” Richard Farquhar, powertrain and vehicle engineering director, said in a recent video. “He was utterly focused to be the best he could be to achieve the highest levels in his sport.”
Motor1.com has access to several galleries of motorsport images that include seldom-seen images of Senna. To commemorate his amazing life, take a look at these rare images from Senna's racing career.
