20th anniversary of Ayrton Senna's death

Thousands of fans have attended a memorial service at Imola as part of a four-day tribute to mark the 20th anniversary of Ayrton Senna's death.

The three-time world champion died aged 34 when his Williams crashed during the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix.

Family members, plus past and current drivers, also gathered as a silence was held at exactly 14:17 CET.

Double world champion Fernando Alonso, among those at Imola, said of Senna: "For a lot of us, he was our idol."

Gerhard Berger, Senna's team-mate at McLaren, added: "He was the best driver of all time."

Thursday's commemorations began with a parade to remember both Senna and Austrian driver Roland Ratzenberger, who died in qualifying on the same track a day earlier.

Fans from across the world were at the Italian circuit, many laying flowers at the feet of the bronze statue of Senna, which stands on the inside of the track near the corner where he crashed, BBC reports.
