Senna's McLaren Was Once Sponsored By Dragon Ball Z's Animators

There’s been some pretty awesome sponsors in F1 history; Superman, Sega, even Star Wars! Now here’s another one courtesy of Japenese anime, Dragon Ball Z.

Creator, Akira Toriyama met with Ayrton Senna in 1990 to draw some special (and super cool) artwork for an edition of Shonen Jump magazine.
