Sebastian Vettel will drive Ayrton Senna’s McLaren MP4/8 during the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix weekend, in a fitting tribute to the late F1 icon.

The three-time Brazilian world champion’s life was tragically cut short by a fatal crash at Imola 30 years ago today, aged just 34, but his legacy lives on, as does the way he dazzled F1 for his career in this sport.

And Vettel – himself a four-time F1 world champion with Red Bull – will be at Imola for this year’s Grand Prix, which takes place from May 17-19, to pay tribute to a driver he also admired.

The German will take the wheel of the MP4/8, the car McLaren competed in in the 1993 championship, which was to be Senna’s last with the team before his move to Williams for the following season.
