Valued Exposure: Ayrton Senna

Ayrton Senna drives the Toleman-Hart TG184 in the rain to second place during the Grand Prix of Monaco, 3 June 1984

Ayrton Senna punches the air having driven the Toleman-Hart TG184 to second place during the Grand Prix of Monaco, 3 June 1984. His drive is recognised as one of the most remarkable Formula 1 debuts of all time. He started from 13th on the grid, and many believe he would have overtaken Alain Prost, the winner, had the race not been stopped because of the conditions. Senna won three Formula 1 world championships before dying on 1 May 1994 in the San Marino Grand Prix.
