Ayrton Senna da Silva (Brazilian Portuguese: 21 March 1960 1 May 1994) was a Brazilian racing driver who won
three Formula One world championships.
He was killed in an accident while leading the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. He was among the most dominant and
successful Formula One drivers of the modern era and is considered by many as the greatest racing driver of all time.
He was the most recent driver to have been killed at Formula One World Championship event until July 2015 following the
death of race driver, Jules Bianchi.

Senna began his motorsport career in karting, moving up to open-wheel racing in 1981, and winning the British Formula 3
championship in 1983. He made his Formula One debut with Toleman-Hart in 1984 before moving to Lotus-Renault the
following year and winning six Grands Prix over the next three seasons. In 1988, he joined Frenchman Alain Prost at
McLaren-Honda. Between them, they won all but one of the 16 Grands Prix that year and Senna claimed his first World
Championship. Prost claimed the championship in 1989, and Senna his second and third championships in 1990 and 1991.
In 1992, the Williams-Renault combination began to dominate Formula One. Senna nonetheless managed to finish the 1993
season as runner-up, winning five races and negotiating a move to Williams in 1994.
Senna has often been voted as the best and most influential Formula One driver of all time in various motorsport polls.
He was recognised for his qualifying speed over one lap and from 1989 until 2006 held the record for most pole positions.
He was also acclaimed for his wet weather performances, such as the 1984 Monaco Grand Prix, the 1985 Portuguese
Grand Prix, and the 1993 European Grand Prix. He holds a record six victories at the Monaco Grand Prix, and is the third
most successful driver of all time in terms of race wins. Senna courted controversy throughout his career, particularly during
his turbulent rivalry with Alain Prost. In the Japanese Grands Prix of 1989 and 1990, each of which decided the Championship
of that year, collisions between Senna and Prost determined the eventual winner.

Modified model
of the Toleman
Senna drove
to the second
place in Monaco,
maybe he could
have won it, but
A. Prost keeps
asking to flag
the race because
of the wheater,
but it could also
be the man
in 3th place.
Stefan Bellof
could win the
race because he
was gaining fast
and Senna's Toleman
wasn't 100% any more
Later Stefan was DSQ
because of
weight of the car.

Ducati 916

1995


First presented at the
Bologna Motor Show in
December 1994, the
916 Senna was a
special edition to
commemorate Formula 1
World Champion,
Ayrton Senna, who was
an avid Ducati owner
and endorsed its
release two months
prior to his death in
May 1994.
At the time, the project
was facilitated by the
fact that Claudio
Castiglioni, Ducati's
owner, was a personal
friend of the F1 legend.
In total, between 1995
and 1998, Ducati
released three "Senna"
editions and, in every
instance, net proceeds
were donated to the
Instituto Ayrton Senna
charity.
