Lando Norris followed up his incredible maiden win in the US with a strong second-place finish at the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix, while team-mate Oscar Piastri brought his car home in fourth in northern Italy.

And now, their star drivers will have the opportunity to pay homage to the team's most successful driver, Ayrton Senna.

The three-time world champion tragically lost his life 30 years ago in a crash at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix, and many emotional tributes have been made in recognition of the anniversary of his death.

'An honour' to race in icon's memory

McLaren have chosen to unveil their on-off design at a track where the Brazilian was at his brilliant best, clinching victory a total of six times in the Principality.

The yellow-green and blue livery takes inspiration from Senna's iconic helmet, and has been designed in celebration of his 'racing legacy'.

"The team is proud to recognise and celebrate the extraordinary life and racing legacy of Ayrton Senna through this McLaren livery," said team CEO Zak Brown on McLaren's official website.

"Senna remains revered and respected as Formula 1’s greatest icon, and McLaren’s most decorated driver.

"His impact on McLaren is enormous, not only through his racing record but also presence within the team, and now his legacy, so it’s an honour to race for him at his most successful circuit in his green, yellow and blue colours."
