Video: Honda's Tribute to Ayrton Senna

Posted on by  

Honda released a new video video that pays tribute to F1 legend Ayrton Senna . According to the company, while creating this video it used telemetry data and audio samples from 1989 and then installed several speakers and lights to create Ayrton Senna’s "ghost" on the Suzuka racetrack in Japan.

In 1989 Senna was driving for McLaren -Honda. At the Suzuka Circuit in Japan, during the penultimate race of the season, he had a small collision with Alain Prost, who was also driving for McLaren-Honda. As a result, Prost won the race and Senna finished the season second with six wins and one second place.

Senna was killed in 1994 during the San Marino Grand Prix. During the seventh lap of the race his car left the track at around 191 mph and hit the concrete retaining wall at around 145 mph. Senna suffered numerous injuries and significant blood loss, and he didn’t survived the crash.
