Completely exhausted after breaking the curse of never having won in Brazil, Senna climbed on the podium at Interlagos with the Brazilian flag, to the delight of the crowd. He was barely able to lift the trophy due to the muscle spasms.F1 cars have gotten longer due to regulations. The end of refueling, which required larger fuel tanks, coupled with safety regulations, which have lengthened cars' noses and made the crash structure rules more stringent, have made F1 cars longer and wider.
Senna began his motorsport career in karting, moved up to open-wheel racing in 1981 and won the 1983 British Formula Three Championship. He made his Formula One debut with Toleman-Hart in 1984, before moving to Lotus-Renault the following year and winning six Grands Prix over the next three seasons.
Telemetry data recovered from the wreckage shows he entered the corner at 309 km/h (192 mph) and then braked hard, downshifting twice to slow down before impacting the wall at 211 km/h (131 mph).
Who was Senna biggest rival
Alain Prost. There is no surprise here. Senna-Prost is not only the greatest rivalry of Senna's career, it is probably the greatest rivalry in F1 history. Not only were the two drivers very evenly matched, but they also raced each other in the primes of their careers, alternating world championships between them.Since joining the calendar in 2008, the Singapore Grand Prix has never been completed in less than one hour and 51 minutes – in 2018 – and has hit F1's two-hour time limit on four occasions.But the Ferrari's lost performance, evident since Hungary, which has hit it in both qualifying and, especially, the race, is rooted in how it uses its tyres. It was always a little prone on front-limited tracks to opening out its outer front into graining. This lost it the Imola sprint race and Miami.
Out of 250 career races for Michael Schumacher, he managed 68 pole positions, where as Ayrton Senna managed 65 poles in only 162 races. Senna ended his career only a mere 3 poles behind Schumacher's career pole count, but a massive 88 races behind Schumacher's career race starts.
Are any F1 numbers retired
The number 17 was used by Jules Bianchi in 2014 before his crash at the Japanese Grand Prix. Following his death, the number was retired as a mark of respect.An official Formula 1 study has ranked Ayrton Senna as the fastest driver of all-time, ahead of Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton.By the summer of 2014, it was announced that Schumacher was no longer in a coma, and had been transferred to the university hospital in Lausanne, Switzerland. In September of the same year, Schumacher returned to his family home to continue his treatment.

Believe it or not, F1 drivers are some of the fittest sportspeople in the world. But they just drive a car, right Whilst that is true, the speed of the cars, conditions within the car, and length of each race mean these drivers need to be in peak condition.
This is a physically demanding sport that requires the drivers to train like Olympic athletes throughout the season while also having to do all of the work with the car and race.
Why are F1 cars not loud anymore
The turbo generates the intake air pressure and it does that by using the exhaust gas flow pressure. Doing that means the turbo acts like a silencer reducing the exhaust noise.Combined with the global financial recession and the company's frustration about the limitations of the contemporary technical regulations in developing technology relevant to road cars, BMW chose to withdraw from the sport, selling the team back to its founder, Peter Sauber.1.
