Starting the McLaren MP4-4 (Ayrton Senna)Mechanics at McLaren fire up Senna’s MP4-4, which last raced in 1988.

If you enjoyed the clip demonstrating the start-up process of a 1990 March-Judd, chances are you’ll love this too. The former car of none-other than Ayrton Senna, this McLaren MP4-4 last raced in 1988 – the year in which he won his first Formula 1 World Championship. Naturally this car is an item that McLaren and it’s mechanics hold extremely dearly today, so it’s quite special that we are afforded the opportunity to watch them reacquainting themselves with what the team describes as “an old friend”.
