McLaren have released a beautiful video to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the death of Ayrton Senna.

The three-time World Champion was involved in a fatal crash at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix.

The Brazilian is being remembered around the world today and the team he drove for between 1988 and 1993 are among those to mark the occasion.

The video (below) looks at Senna's final qualifying lap for the 1988 Monaco Grand Prix, a trip around the circuit many regard as the greatest-ever lap in the history of Formula 1.

Senna said himself of the lap: "That was the maximum for me; no room for anything more. I never really reached that feeling again".
