”I’m not designed to finish second or third. I am designed to win."

Well, though he's said that in the past, Ayrton Senna didn't win in Germany. Not on the track, anyway. But as far as underlining his brilliance when he forgets about the occasional questionable manoeuvre, he won handsome personal victory as he finished second to the inevitable Nigel Mansell at Hockenheim.

To Raymond Sommer and Gilles Villeneuve the manner in which you played the game was more important than the result. To the real Coeur de Lion or the French-Canadian, 17th place was satisfying if the car was only good enough for 18th. Senna does not share that view, believing victory to be everything. That has been the very cornerstone of his career. Yet he must have drawn intense satisfaction from finishing only 4.5s behind Mansell.
