The trophies that will be awarded to the podium finishers after the race in Imola contain a small tribute to three-time F1 Champion Senna, at the circuit that he lost his life in 1994. 

Each trophy is inspired by the Imola layout, which went through many modifications and changes after the deaths of both Senna and Roland Ratzenberger during that tragic race weekend.

“Dedicate ad Ayrton” is featured on all of the trophies, that are awarded to the top-three drivers and the winning constructor after the race. A 0.14 carat diamond has also been added into the trophy at the location where Senna had his fatal crash.

Drivers such as Pierre Gasly have opted for special tribute helmets to Senna this weekend, however, many have questioned the need to pinpoint the exact place in which Senna lost his life as well as the lack of recognition for Ratzenberger on the trophies.

What do you think about the Senna tribute in the trophies?
