The Brazilian circuit of Interlagos, home of one of the most traditional events in Formula 1 racing, celebrated its 80th anniversary on Tuesday with a new giant mural of the legendary Ayrton Senna; produced by the famous artist Eduardo Kobra.

Nearing the level of national folklore, the story of how Senna won Brazilian Grand Prix despite problems in the gearbox ing the final laps of the race is widely know.

The work will be unveiled this Tuesday, at the entrance of the circuit’s boxes. 27 meters high by 10 meters wide, it commemorates the victory of the Brazilian driver in 1991 at the São Paulo race track, one of the most epic of his career. With this win, Ayrton Senna became a three-time Formula 1 world champion and died just 3 short years later on May 1, 1994, during the San Marino Grand Prix in Imola, Italy.

Interlagos ended up becoming a space for tributes to Ayrton. There are also statues and now this beautiful mural by Kobra, which, through his Instagram account, showed his satisfaction in completing yet another tribute to the much admired driver, who would have turned 60 in March of this year.
