After six years, and three Formula One World Championships,
with the McLaren team, Ayrton Senna joined Williams in 1994, hoping a move to the
world-beating Renault-powered team would bring him another title.
It should have been the beginning of an exciting new chapter
in the Brazilian legends career. Tragically, Senna would lose his life in only
his third race with Williams.
His death rocked the sport and left Damon Hill carrying the
hopes of Williams as it struggled in the aftermath of Senna’s loss. The son of
two-times World Champion Graham Hill rose to meet the challenge, only losing
the title at the final round after a highly controversial move by eventual
victor Michael Schumacher.
This evocative photograph, from the archives of LAT, shows
Senna experiencing the Williams FW16 for the first time, at the dawn of what
should have been an amazing partnership. Hill appears to be hanging on his
every word as the ‘master’ seemingly shares his great knowledge.
