Three World Champion titles, 161 Grand Prix, 65 pole positions and 41 victories, including six in Monaco for which he holds the record, Ayrton Senna may be the most popular driver in Formula 1 history. His exploits in the rain, his tenacity and his rivalry with Alain Prost are among the great memories of Formula One at the turn of the 1980s and through the 1990s.

Considered one of the greatest drivers in the history of F1, Ayrton Senna da Silva’s status has far exceeded that of a simple sports champion, which is why he became an enduring idol in Brazil.

On the 30th anniversary of his first Monegasque victory, a Grand Prix Suite has been dedicated to him at the Fairmont Monte Carlo and inaugurated by his niece and Director General of the Ayrton Senna Institute, Bianca Senna.

In the presence of HSH Prince Albert, a commemorative plaque was unveiled at the entrance of the hotel before a procession of international journalists came up to discover the suite, which offers a balcony on the famous Fairmont hairpin curve as well as on the entrance to the Louis II tunnel.

After the Jean Alesi Suite, the David Coulthard Suite and the Sir Stirling Moss Suite, this is a new space dedicated to this triple World Champion. Mrs Senna’s private collection of photos, books and other items relating to the driver have been incorporated in the suite, as the hotel pays its own a unique tribute.
