On May 1st, 1994, Senna perished in a tragic accident at the San Marino Grand Prix, just a day after rookie Roland Ratzenberger suffered a fatal crash during qualifying.

Senna, widely regarded as one of the best to ever grace the grid, left an indelible mark on the sport. He won three world championships with McLaren and emerged victorious in 41 races throughout his career, which was cut short at the peak of his powers.

The wake-up call from both tragedies was a stark one, as safety improvements were implemented almost immediately following Imola, leading to significant improvements in F1 safety protocols.

New Senna mural unveiled at the Miami GP

Keeping the memory of the legendary driver alive, Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra revealed his tribute to Senna - a powerful mural that now stands tall at the Miami International Autodrome and features the three-time champion in his iconic yellow helmet.

However, this isn't Kobra's first Senna homage, as he's previously created stunning murals in the streets of Sao Paulo and Interlagos Raceway, where Senna secured unforgettable F1 victories in 1991 and 1993.

Kobra even extended his artistic tribute to Lewis Hamilton upon his honourary Brazilian citizenship, crafting a mural reminiscent of Senna's style in the seven-time champion's honour.
