The future Formula One star is driving his FF2000 Van Diemen and he is still racing under the name of Ayrton Da Silva. The race finishes at about 15 minutes in the video and you can catch Ayrton in all his helmet-less glory doing a victory lap.

G’wan the Joey Greenan from Belfast, who (as Alex also points out) actually overtakes Senna early in the race and pushes him for most of it.
