For Ayrton Senna, the race in Suzuka was a huge letdown. Senna had worked hard to fine-tune his car, paying homage to Honda with his victory in their last Grand Prix in their home country.
“Those people really touched me. I was saddened at not being able to pay them back with a victory.”
He looked for Christian Fittipaldi (Minardi) after the race to congratulate him on his first Formula 1 win.
