Autosport Podcast: Was 1991 Senna’s greatest F1 title? | F1 News


The 2021 Formula 1 season will mark the 30th anniversary of Ayrton Senna’s third and final world title triumph, which came in the 1991 championship against stiff opposition from Williams.

Autosport magazine has produced a special issue dedicated to the anniversary of the 1991 season – including explanations of Jaguar’s design revolution in the World Sportscar Championship, the fierce title fight in British Formula 3, and Michael Andretti’s famous CART triumph – also discussing whether the campaign was Senna’s finest in F1.
