The season

The McLaren of 1993 didn’t do justice to the prior McLaren and those victorious years with Ayrton Senna. McLaren had an engine weaker than the William’s engines of Alain Prost and Damon Hill, and Benetton seemed to be improving more and more.

Lucky for them that they had one the best drivers of all times on their team. Even with inferior equipment, which impeded direct competition for the drivers’ title, Ayrton Senna won five races, one pole position and even scored 16 best laps that season.

He finished the season as runner-up in the world championship, but he wanted – and deserved – a better car and engine.
