Senna's Sonic trophy out of storage, and on display at McLaren
Ayrton Senna's winners' trophy from the Formula 1 1993 European Grand Prix has gone on display at the McLaren Technology Centre.
The trophy, which depicts race-sponsor SEGA's video game character Sonic the Hedgehog, has been 'in storage' since the victory but has been subject to fan attention on Twitter in recent days.
In one of the most memorable races in the history of the sport, Senna took victory after judging the changeable conditions at Donington Park to perfection, lapping everyone but second-placed Damon Hill.
However, it was the Brazilian's first lap display that was the most awe-inspiring sequence of the race, as McLaren CEO Zak Brown explained on his Twitter account.
"I remember the race well," Brown recounted. "Ayrton Senna. Wet. Who'd he pass? Wendlinger, Schumacher, Hill and then Prost into the final hairpin to take the lead, destroy the field."
