Senna's Mercedes 190E race car feature video

We take a look at the story of Ayrton Senna's legendary win in the one-make Mercedes 190E race at the Nurburgring in 1984

The story of how Ayrton Senna, a relatively unknown rookie F1 driver at the time, went to the Nurburgring in 1984 and beat a number of former World Champions in the Mercedes 190E one-make race on equal terms is often seen as one of the Brazilian's pivotal moments.

In this video, evo editor Nick Trott and motoring editor Mike Duff talk about the race, and the car: a Mercedes 190E 2.3-16, which was recently featured in issue 185 of evo.
