Ferrari pair to attend Senna tribute

Ferrari pair to attend Senna tribute

Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen will both attend Ayrton Senna tribute event at Imola on Thursday.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of three-time World Champion Senna's death as well as Roland that of Ratzenberger. The Brazilian died during the 1994 San Marino GP, just a day after Austrian rookie Ratzenberger was also killed during qualifying.

Four days of commemorations will take place at the Imola track this week and Ferrari have confirmed that Alonso and Raikkonen will attend.

Two-time World Champion Alonso paid tribute to Senna on the Ferrari website, saying: "I think Senna set the standard for all drivers and he was definitely the best of his generation.

"What made him special was his great will to win and the numbers speak for themselves. He always fought right to the bitter end and that earned him the respect of all his colleagues and it's what makes him a legend today. I was very little at the time and Spanish TV did not show Formula One, but I began to know something about him as my father was a fan and my first kart was painted in the same colours as his car."

Raikkonen added: "Senna's death was an incredibly sad moment for the world of Formula One. I was still at school back then and even if I don't remember much about him, because I was too young, that day has stayed fixed in my memory. I think he was a great driver and a benchmark for many who came after him."
