Produced by the Ayrton Senna Institute in a partnership with FOM (Formula One Management), the video is part of the celebration for Ayrton’s first win in Monaco 30 years ago.
A series of tributes to Ayrton Senna are made during the week of the 2017 F1 Monaco Grand Prix – the Brazilian driver, who holds the record for most wins at the world championship’s biggest race, with six triumphs – his first one was achieved exactly 30 years ago.
Ayton Senna Institute, in a partnership with FOM (Formula One Management), has prepared another gift for his fans: a special video featuring Senna’s main achievements at the Principality, including his impressive debut in the rain, in 1984, and the six victories for which the Brazilian became known as the “King of Monaco”: 1987, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992 and 1993 – a record that remains unbroken.
“We’re very happy to be here, celebrating the 30th anniversary of his first win in Monaco in such an intense and unique way. The video that we’re launching today is very special. It was made with great care for all of Ayrton’s fans everywhere in the world”, says Bianca Senna, the driver’s niece and the Ayrton Senna institute Director. The video is also being shown on the official F1 big screens alongside the Monaco circuit.
Other important tributes to the three-time F1 champion have marked the Monaco GP, this week: an Ayrton Senna statue was unveiled on the Fairmont corner by Prince Albert II; and the Fairmont Hotel has launched a special suite for the week of the race, featuring original items that belonged to the driver, such as his helmet, steering wheel, etc.

All knowledge produced is shared with more players through initiatives of education, diffusion, advocacy, technical cooperation and technology transfer.
We operate in a network with education professionals, researchers from the various fields of knowledge, other thirdsector organizations, businesspeople and citizens who are engaged in promoting a solid change to the foundations of schools. Our actions are financed by donations, licensing resources and by partnerships with the private sector.
