Grand Prix of Japan

At the peak of his fitness and powers of concentration, Senna produced one of his greatest drives at the 1988 Japanese Grand Prix, a year where he clinched the first of his three titles, in that brilliant McLaren MP4/4.

In a season that was a classic head-to-head between McLaren teammates - read arch-rivals - Senna and McLaren, lap 27 is where the context of the Grand Prix changed after he'd dropped down to fourteenth, having clinched the pole.

In the mid-segment of the race, Senna, then right behind his teammate breezed past 'The Professor' when Prost was balked whilst lapping Andrea de Cesaris.

That move by the Brazilian, after he'd made a stellar recovery would see him blast past the checkered flag to collect an enthralling win ahead of the more experienced Prost.
