Beautiful bronze statue of Ayrton Senna unveiled

The English sculptor, Paul Oz, unveiled a beautiful bronze statue of Ayrton Senna yesterday, and that was no coincidence on the thirty-sixth anniversary of the Brazilian’s first victory.

On April 21, 1985 Ayrton Senna masterfully won a soaked GP of Portugal in his Lotus. Except for Michele Alboreto in his Ferrari, the Brazilian drove everyone on a lap.

British sculptor Paul Oz, who has already created a statue of Ayrton Senna, revealed his latest ode to Senna on social media.

“Today in 1985, F1’s greatest icon won its first victory in horrific conditions in Estoril. My life-size bronze statue celebrates this and also my earliest memories of the sport, the black and gold of JPS Lotus, ”Oz said in a tweet.

Oz sculpted Ayrton Senna while waiting for assistance after his Lotus failed him during one of the practice sessions of the GP of Portugal. Senna’s victory was not only historic for the Brazilian himself, it was also the first victory for Lotus since the 1982 Australian GP.

Later that year, Senna would do his trick again by winning the Belgian GP in the same wet conditions.
