Portuguese Grand Prix – 1988


Ayrton Senna’s McLaren was not set up appropriately for the Estoril circuit. He got out of the car after Friday’s qualifying session with a sour look on his face. He didn’t speak much. Just some general comments about the car.

On Saturday, after more frustrating attempts, he did not win the pole position. His mood also did not improve.

The driver was counting on a pole position in Portugal to win the race. He somehow knew that his best shot was starting in front.

On Sunday morning, wrapping up the warm up session, he sequestered himself in the boxes, and only left when it was time for the drivers meeting, which generally happened one hour before the race start.

He finished the race in fifth, not happy at all with the result, and had the air of someone who had finished last. Prost started in first position and dominated the Grand Prix. He did not set the fastest lap, which went to Gerhard Berger (Ferrari).
