CANADIAN GRAND PRIX

Imagem placeholder

Ayrton Senna had always liked the Canadian track. It’s not a fast track, but it challenges the driver with it’s short straights, hard breaking and treacherous chicanes, with difficult to gain high exit speeds.
Exploiting these characteristics, the Brazilian driver secured second position on the grid in qualifying, with a time just 0.70 thousandths of a second behind Nigel Mansell’s Williams.
During the race, Ayrton Senna was unable to attack Mansell and defended his position throughout the race. He maintained the second position for many laps, but succumbed to the slower performance of his Lotus, finishing in fourth.
After the race, Senna declared:

I raced in true Olympic Spirit today, when the most important thing was not winning, but competing and scoring points. This is because in half a dozen laps, my car became very off balance. It was a little bit scarier than taking a taxicab ride.
