Season two of #BringBackV10s is here! The wait is over, and we're kicking things off with our first episode dedicated to Ayrton Senna. Rather than choose one of the obvious Senna stories to look back at, we're reflecting on his final Brazilian GP in 1994 - the only race he completed a decent amount of laps in behind the wheel of a Williams. Glenn Freeman is joined by Edd Straw and Brazilian broadcaster Lito Cavalcanti to trace the story of Senna's final home race all the way from the day his Williams deal for 1994 was announced, to the moment he spun out while chasing Michael Schumacher. We look at what the expectations were for Senna, McLaren's audacious bid to get him to change his mind, why he felt he needed a fresh start in F1, his awareness of the pressure he'd be under following the retirement of Alain Prost, how Prost almost ended up back on the grid with McLaren, how Senna reacted when he realised Williams had lost its advantage of the previous two years, the impressive nature of his performance in Brazil even though it wasn't going to be enough to stop Schumacher, and what Adrian Newey discovered was wrong with the first iteration of the FW16.
