ITALIAN Grand Prix

italia 86

Senna was in a good mood over the weekend. And it seemed to have little to do with the results obtained in Italy.
The Brazilian driver would start only in the fifth position, but he maintained his happy mood up to the race’s start.
After the race, he didn’t seem disappointed with the Lotus’ break in the transmission, which reduced his participation in the Grand Prix to measly 15 seconds.
The key to his tranquility was a series of meetings with Japanese engineers from Honda in Monza.
His Lotus might potentially get the best engine in the category during the 1987 season. Without a doubt, news that had made him forget any let downs from that weekend.

I believe the transmission went out. Everything was perfect, there was no warning. I realized there was a problem when I touched the clutch.
