Senna's 1984 Toleman-Hart F1 car available at auction

Staff writer

Bonhams will offer at auction the first Formula 1 car that Ayrton Senna drove at the Monaco Grand Prix.

The 1984 Toleman-Hart TG184, designed by Rory Byrne and Pat Symonds took Senna to his first ever podium finish in the sport, in somewhat controversial circumstances. Senna qualified in 13th position in the 1.5-liter turbo Toleman, but the race start was delayed due to heavy rain. The Brazilian's mastery of wet conditions would later become famous, but after just 31 laps and a number of retirements, he was just seven seconds behind the leader and pole-sitter Alain Prost.
