20 Years Ago Today Ayrton Senna Died

"And suddenly I realized that I was no longer driving the car consciously. I was driving it by a kind of instinct, only I was in a different dimension."

May 1, 1994. San Marino Grand Prix, Italy. A tragic day in motorsport history. It was this day, exactly 20 years ago, that Ayrton Senna was killed in a crash at that Formula 1 race. Without question, Senna was one of the best, if not the greatest, F1 drivers of all time. He is a legend in both life and death, an icon of the sport he loved. During this day of remembrance, perhaps it’s best to look back on Senna’s brilliance at one particular race: the 1988 Monaco Grand Prix, where he completed the single greatest lap in F1 history.

There’s no need for us to explain it, because McLaren, one of the teams for whom Senna raced for, has put together this short film capturing that lap. None other than Senna himself is narrating. Remember Senna.
