Ayrton Senna, 1993 European Grand Prix

Considered by many as Ayrton Senna’s last great win, the 1993 European Grand Prix was a very special race for the three time World Champion. Not only was Donington Park where Senna first tested a Formula 1 car, nine years later it became the setting for the Brazilian’s most spectacular start, allowing him to climb from fourth on the grid, to leading the race by the end of lap 1. Pictured above at Goddard Corner driving his McLaren MP4/8 Ford, Senna would go on to secure a solid victory in the season’s third round.
