The Japanese based automaker Honda has recently released a video in which the company is paying tribute to the legendary F1 driver Ayrton Senna.
Honda’s newest clip is probably one of the best ones ever released by a car company and if you’re a Formula One fan than you will simply love it. The video in question is named “Sound of Honda – Ayrton Senna 1989” and it’s the company’s way of paying tribute to perhaps the best Formula One driver ever, who lost his life tragically in 1994, on the 1st of May, at 34 years old, on the Imola track in Italy.
Ayrton Senna da Silva has won the Formula One world championship three times and he has made his debut in back in 1984 with Toleman-Hart, before moving to Lotus-Renault one year later. He managed to win six Grand Prix over the next three seasons and in 1988 he joined McLaren-Honda, with Alain Prost. Ayrton Senna tragically lost his life in the 1994 season, during the San Marino Grand Prix, on the Tamburello corner, on lap 7. The Formula 1 car left the track at 307 km/h (191 mph) and it hit the concrete wall at 233 km/h (145 mph). Senna was extracted from his race car two minutes after the crash and was taken to Bologna’s Maggiore Hospital, where he was declared dead hours later. He remains the last Formula One driver to lose his life on the track.
