Imola and Ayrton Senna. A tragic, indissoluble, bond will always tie the Romagna track to the Brazilian champion in the heart of the fans.

The three-time Formula 1 world champion here on 1st May 1994 found death. Senna the champion, Senna the predestined, Senna the King of the wet, Senna the Emperor of the pole position. Senna marking an era of F1.

But above all Senna the man, able to give the F1 a dimension closer to his fans and able to turn, in silence and without publicity, the look to the weak. Three world “crowning”, who knows how many he could have reached if fate had not decided to dramatically close his career at 34.

Motor Legend Festival could but celebrate the man, before the champion.
