Williams F1 Team's Cars To Feature Ayrton Senna Logo (PICTURES)

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.
