    Just take a look at this...

    1984 - 2nd in a Toleman, first year in Formula 1, a bloody rookie. (actually won the race)
    1985 - Pole Position but retired from race
    1986 - 3rd on grid and ended 3rd.
    1987 - Won the race
    1988 - Pole Position but had to retire due to a crash when he was something like 50 seconds ahead of Prost in the same car.
    1989 - Pole Position and won the race.
    1990 - Pole Position and won the race.
    1991 - Pole Position and won the race.
    1992 - Won the race.
    1993 - Started third, won the race.

    All of this in three different cars. 1988 he outqualified Prost by 1.4 seconds in identical machinery.

    Same as Schumi :)

    What set Senna apart is that he did Formula 1 for 10 years compared to Grahams 17 and Schumis 18 years.

    He actually won in 84 but the rules took the race order two laps before the red flag :)

    I've always found this race very interesting. In the movie Senna they talk about how he wasn't trying to beat Prost, he was trying the embarrass him. And of course Prost didn't like that so much...
