F1 figures to share Ayrton Senna memories at London charity event

The Life of Ayrton Senna Q&A in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital and the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals charities will be held in London on Tuesday June 30, organised by Hexagon Modern Classics.

Former Williams design chief Head and 13-time grand prix winner Coulthard worked with Senna in the early part of 1994 before his death in the San Marino GP at Imola, with Coulthard stepping up from the test driver role to race for the team after the loss of Senna.

Lowe, now technical director at the all-conquering Mercedes F1 team, joined McLaren's R&D department for Senna's final season at the squad in 1993.

Donnelly raced alongside Senna in F1 in 1990, with the Brazilian famously attending the scene of the Irishman's horrific crash at Jerez that year.

Pandey was writer and producer on the award-winning Senna film that introduced the Brazilian's story to a new audience on its release in 2010.

The Senna evening will also feature an auction of F1 memorabilia and will be presented by Sky Sports F1's Natalie Pinkham. Click here for more details.

Why F1’s inconvenient penalties have to stay

OPINION: Quibbles over the length of time taken by Formula 1's stewards over decisions are entirely valid. But however inconvenient it is, there can be no questioning the importance of having clearly defined rules that everyone understands and can stick to. Recent events have shown that ambiguity could have big consequences
