Machine: Williams FW16 / Tyre: GOOD YEAR / Car No.2

Changing the regulation deprived Williams high-tech machine of their advantages. Schumacher Benetton rose shaply in this season and joined into the top ranked team. Senna da Silva got three pole-position at Brazil GP, Pacific GP, and San Marino GP, however, he retired in all races with accident unlike him. After Pacific GP, he said, "My season will start from San Marino GP." The tragic accident just happened when he showed us his eagerness for the title(Ref. The Longest Day).
Schumacher grew into Senna's rival and show his remarkable driving and top shape, winning the two straight from Brazil GP. Williams team was disturbed at the loss of the most competitive active suspension as their symbolic advantage due to changed regulations. His patient was running out of his mis-speculation which was supposed to title four with the most competitive machine like Prost four titles.

Ayrton Senna da Silva had 41 victories - the second record in history(in those days), however, he tried to break 51 wins of Prost's record. We were interested in his recapture to title with the battle between Senna and Schumacher in 1994.
