Williams have confirmed they will run an updated 20th anniversary Ayrton Senna logo on the nose of their FW36 car for the new Formula 1 season.

On 1 May, it will have been 20 years since three-time Formula 1 champion Senna died following a crash at the San Marino Grand Prix while driving for Williams.

Senna is one of Formula 1's enduring icons

His death came a day after Roland Ratzenberger was killed in qualifying on the Imola circuit.

Senna won three World Championships driving for Ron Dennis' McLaren, where he experienced a fraught relationship with teammate Alain Prost, before his 1994 switch to Williams.

A Brazilian sporting icon, Senna's legacy was cemented in the eponymous 2010 documentary by Asif Kapadia.
