Cardinal Senna

Prost dominated, but when the rains came it was Senna who stole the show to rack up McLaren's 100th victory For its first 29 laps the Brazilian GP ran according to the script that had been written the moment that Alain Prost and Damon Hill in their Williams FW15Cs began to decimate their opposition in qualifying.
