Tribute to Ayrton Senna on trophies at Emilia Romagna GP

In 2020 the grid is often prey to the drivers of Mercedes and Max Verstappen and this weekend they again seem to be top candidates for the podium. While many races have the same trophies because of sponsors, F1 has decided to design a unique trophy with a special edge for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix in tribute to Senna.

You can see that the trophy is a replica of the track layout. With the biggest two trophies for the winning driver and the winning team and the two smaller cups for second and third place. The Tamburello has a special spot on the trophy. This has everything to do with the death of Ayrton Senna.

The Brazilian had a terrible accident there where he died. The turn is marked on the trophies with a 0.14 carat diamond, RaceFans reports. In addition, the trophies also bear the words "Dedicate ad Ayrton." This is how Formula 1 pays tribute to the triple world champion.
