F1: Top 5 Races of Ayrton Senna
#4 1984 Monaco Grand Prix
Ayrton Senna’s love affair with Monaco was indeed special and to top off his favourite street circuit with a healthy dose of rain was undeniably the best formula for Senna to come into his own. In 1984, the Brazilian driver showed his mettle by dragging his Toleman-Hart to the second position by the end of the Monaco Grand Prix.
Ayrton slotted in 13th on the starting grid and rapidly manoeuvred his way ahead of most of the field. Soon enough, the rookie was closing in on the race leader, Alain Prost. In a way, the conditions were foreshadowing the upcoming enticing battles between the two rivals, but for now, the race had to be red flagged and concluded with Prost declared the winner.
Despite not becoming the eventual winner of the Grand Prix, Senna showed his prowess in merely his fifth race as a Formula One driver by delivering a stellar performance.
