Formula One Legends: World Championship 1993

The 1993 Formula One season was the 44th season of FIA Formula One motor racing. It featured the 1993 FIA Formula One World Championship, which commenced on March 14, 1993 and ended on November 7 after sixteen races.

In all, only seven drivers who lined up on the grid in South Africa were with the same team they had been with the previous year: Senna, Schumacher, Alesi, Herbert,de Cesaris, Suzuki and Fittipaldi.

The 1993 season marked the return of one of the greatest duels in the history of Formula 1: the confrontation between Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost.

Back to the category, Prost thought only to be world champion again. Both he and Senna sought the tetracampeonato.

But there was no denying the French favoritism in his new Williams car and few were betting on McLaren, who had replaced the old Honda engine by Ford.

But Ayrton Senna surprised and managed to fight on equal terms with Prost in those duels that should last forever in Formula 1.

But in the end it was realized that it was almost impossible to beat Alain Prost that year. And the Frenchman won the world champion, Ayrton Senna leaving in second place.
