Must read

“Ayrton Senna is becoming a member of Williams…” I’ve to say that though I used to be the workforce supervisor on the time, I had a sure feeling of trepidation once I heard this information. It was fairly daunting, as a result of he was Ayrton Senna… he was coming with just a little little bit of a popularity.

I suppose we thought he is perhaps troublesome to work with – the entire high drivers have been demanding, but it surely was one thing we might received used to. We might had Nigel Mansell and Alain Prost on the workforce, however no person fairly knew what Ayrton can be like. Nonetheless, we have been skilled and we knew what we have been doing.

I first met him at Williams’s manufacturing facility over the winter, in all probability at the beginning of 1994. He popped in for 5 minutes to say hiya and he was fairly quiet and very well mannered. That was the factor that instantly struck me about him. He was very calm. He was direct and matter-of-fact.

You can see he was making an attempt to weigh the place up as a result of we have been totally different to McLaren, the place he’d been for six years. McLaren had been moulded round him and he needed to begin that course of yet again with us, however we have been decided to make him really feel as welcome as potential.

The connection was very new on the first race and, after first observe, we have been within the debrief room wanting on the time sheets. Ayrton’s race engineer, David Brown, stated one thing like, “Bloody Senna is all the time there or thereabouts is not he?” to nobody specifically. Ayrton, who was sitting subsequent to him, simply seemed sideways with an enquiring look. David turned the color of a beetroot. “Sorry mate, drive of behavior,” he stated. There was an excellent environment concerning the place.

Though issues hadn’t been going nicely over the beginning of the season, there was no panic from Ayrton himself. He was calm and decided to assist the workforce get to the foundation of any issues we had with the automobile. He received his head down, labored with the workforce and was pulling us in the appropriate route. He was ready to work – and to work arduous. He wasn’t leaping up and down when issues weren’t going proper.

After he spun off in Interlagos chasing Schumacher, he got here again into the storage the place I used to be with David Brown. He apologised for going off and stated that it would not occur once more. I believe that actually summed up the bloke.

Nonetheless, working at Williams, the stress was all the time on. And after two non-finishes within the first two races of 1994, it was actually on. There wasn’t a ‘let’s wait and see’ perspective. Issues needed to change and we have been pushing arduous.

It had develop into clear that one thing was not proper with the tempo of the automobile Ayrton Senna and Damon Hill had, and the engineers have been making an attempt to determine what it was. It was all the way down to the powers that be, Adrian Newey and Patrick Head, to kind it out they usually’d recognized that there was one thing amiss and that it was an aerodynamic challenge of some variety. There was a frustration and we have been questioning why the automobile wasn’t faster as a result of, by rights, it ought to’ve been.

I did not suppose Ayrton’s actions in going to the scene of the [Ratzenberger] crash have been unusual on the time as a result of he was the person in motor racing

It wasn’t that the automobile lacked outright tempo. Ayrton had put the factor on pole for the primary two races, but it surely was a wrestle when the inexperienced gentle got here on; we did not appear to have race tempo and Ayrton had retired from the opening two grands prix of the season. We might solely had one podium with Damon Hill, however Williams weren’t the form of workforce who panicked. We began going via all the things correctly and methodically and we might put some upgrades on the automobile for the race in Italy. By the point we received to Imola that weekend, all people was gagging for a end result.

Qualifying on Friday went nicely for us. Senna went out and did 1m21.5s, which was half a second sooner than Michael Schumacher’s Benetton; Damon was seventh. Other than a spin by Damon, I am unable to bear in mind any large dramas for our workforce, however that wasn’t the case in every single place. Rubens Barrichello had a significant off at Variante Bassa and was knocked unconscious. It was an enormous accident however he survived it and issues carried on as traditional.

Then we received to Saturday qualifying and Roland Ratzenberger’s accident. It was 20 minutes into the ultimate session of the day and Ayrton hadn’t even gone out to do a time by that stage. Damon had accomplished some laps and was second quickest within the session, which was sufficient to place him fourth on the grid. Then there was a pink flag and the information started to filter again to us that Roland’s accident had been an enormous one.

Ayrton went to see for himself what had occurred in Ratzenberger’s accident and he additionally went to the medical centre afterwards. You may suppose that this was an uncommon response, however he was a humane man. I did not suppose Ayrton’s actions in going to the scene of the crash have been unusual on the time as a result of he was the person in motor racing. He was the highest man. He was a bloke who was enthusiastic about motor racing and Method 1.

He was within the sport and he wished to know what was happening with all people. He was wrapped up in it and this was considered one of his methods of displaying it. Ayrton was all the time up entrance with all the things and he wasn’t a bloke who shied away from saying what he thought, which for me was nice. I believe going to the scene after which to the medical centre was simply his approach of coping with it. He was inquisitive about security and deeply involved with humanity. He had a factor about that.

One factor that struck me about Senna’s response, although, was that we did not actually know him – we did not know him in any respect. The connection was simply starting to get there. It was beginning to get to the stage the place if he wished one thing, he would simply come and ask me.

I bear in mind earlier than Imola, Frank Williams had requested me the way it was going with Ayrton and I stated that the bloke was wonderful however that I wanted he would simply come and converse to me if he wished one thing. That was what I used to be there for.

Through the early a part of the season, his supervisor would come and converse to us if there was one thing Ayrton wished however for it to have labored correctly, I knew that we wanted to construct up that non-public relationship with him so we may give him what he wished. Effectively Frank should have had a phrase in his ear as a result of throughout that weekend at Imola, he was totally different. He was asking me “Can we get this?” and “Can we try this?” It wasn’t an issue.

I do not forget that after the Ratzenberger accident, Charlie Moody, who was the workforce supervisor at Simtek on the time, got here to see Adrian. I bear in mind it prefer it was yesterday. We have been sat in our awning and I simply suppose he wanted somebody to speak to. I bear in mind going again to our storage afterwards and considering, ‘Christ, what on earth should this poor bloke be going via?

We did not participate within the second a part of qualifying after the pink flag. Schumacher had improved his time but it surely wasn’t sufficient to take pole place away from Ayrton, whereas Damon was on the second row. We had a shock on that Saturday with the accident, however the Williams workforce have been a bunch of pros they usually simply put their heads down and received on with the job. It is simply the way in which the workforce have been – there was nonetheless a race to organize for.

F1 was lots easier in these days and it is fairly amusing to suppose again now about how we used to organize. On the Sunday morning, we’d cycle via a programme that is not a patch on fashionable racing. It was virtually like, ‘Off we go, right here we’re chaps, let’s go motor racing!’

Damon, Ayrton and myself went to the drivers’ briefing in race management after which straight after that we went into an engineering assembly. Engineering was the core of Williams; that is what made it what it was. I went via the principles – simply the petty stuff like ‘watch the pitlane entry’, ‘do not go over this line or that line’ and issues like that. It was simpler again then as a result of there weren’t almost as many guidelines in Method 1 at that stage as there are right now. We went via the warm-up session and, once more, Ayrton was first and Damon second. It was all going nicely.

Within the build-up to the race, we did observe pitstops as a result of it was the primary yr of refuelling. Whereas the fellows have been doing that, me, David Brown and John Russell, the engineers, sat down and labored out the ultimate calculations for the gas stops. It wasn’t like right now the place you’ll be able to press a button on a pc and it really works it out for you.

We had to have a look at the gas utilization from qualifying and from the warm-up after which we have been trying to see what different elements we might should have in mind at Imola. We thought of whether or not the fellows must flip up their combination at any stage, what the climate was prone to do and issues like that. Ayrton and Damon have been concerned within the selections too, and we got here to a conclusion that we have been all pleased with.

I had these little playing cards printed up, and I wrote down what laps the pitstop window can be on after which I went round and handed one to each member of the pit crew so there may very well be no confusion. The playing cards additionally stated what gas masses Ayrton and Damon wished of their automobiles.

Ayrton himself was satisfied that there was one thing totally different about Schumacher’s automobile. I do know that as a result of I might gone to fulfill him after his first-corner accident at Aida in Japan

Lastly, earlier than the race, we had a method assembly so that everyone knew precisely what was happening. Everytime you try this, it’s a must to construct in a level of flexibility in case one thing occurs or one thing modifications in the course of the race however that was all agreed. All I bear in mind was that it was a reasonably flat-out build-up to the beginning. Race days have been all the time a blur and it was normally a rush to get my overalls on at the beginning as a result of I might be working proper up till the final minute.

I bear in mind one of many issues the paddock was getting obsessive about on the time was Schumacher’s Benetton and its electronics. There was all types of paddock gossip about traction management, which gave the impression to be the norm on the time. Ayrton himself was satisfied that there was one thing totally different about Schumacher’s automobile. I do know that as a result of I might gone to fulfill him after his first-corner accident at Aida in Japan and we walked again to the pits collectively.

Senna was nonetheless on a suspended ban after decking Eddie Irvine after the race at Suzuka the yr earlier than, so I assumed I might higher go and discover him after the Aida crash to verify nothing else kicked off.

After I received to him, he was strolling again and he was very calm. We stopped for 2 minutes to observe within the infield part. Ayrton stated to me that he thought there was one thing totally different about Michael’s automobile. Whether or not there was or not I do not know, however Ayrton was completely positive that there was. On race morning at Imola, I received Richard West, who was the business supervisor of Williams, to get a video digicam and go up onto the roof of the garages to document Schumacher’s begin to see if he left thick black traces on the Tarmac, such as you’d count on.

Everybody was fairly matter-of-fact concerning the weekend. Ratzenberger’s accident had already solid a darkish gloom over the paddock, after which there was one other large accident at the beginning when JJ Lehto, who’d certified fifth, stalled on the grid and Pedro Lamy’s Lotus smashed into the again of him. Bits flew into the grandstands, individuals have been damage and there was crap flying in every single place. I turned to somebody within the storage and stated that I assumed the entire weekend was getting a bit like chariot racing. It was simply ‘wham, bam!’ Issues have been taking place in every single place.

I used to be the lollipop man that day, like I all the time was. In the end, we had all the highest crew at Williams and it simply fell to me to do this explicit job. I did not thoughts – I wished to do it. I used to be the final of the old fashioned and it meant I used to be liable for releasing my automobile again into the race, with no pitlane velocity restrict in these days, which suited me wonderful.

Moreover, there was John Russell, Patrick Head, David Brown and Adrian Newey up on the pitwall. What the hell was I going to do up there aside from level out the bloody apparent? They have been the highest males of their discipline at the moment, so I ran the pitlane aspect of it. That approach I may guarantee that the gas was proper, that we have been able to go, and that the pitstops went OK.

Frank used to offer us a tough time about not being quick sufficient within the pitstops, so I concentrated lots on making an attempt to enhance that facet of the workforce. It was essential. To not the extent it’s now, but it surely was very important.

After the shunt at the beginning, the protection automobile got here out. It had been within the rulebook for 12 months and had solely been used twice earlier than, so the entire state of affairs was new to everybody and threw a spanner within the works so far as gas calculations for the race have been involved. We needed to suppose on our ft a bit however not for lengthy, as a result of the race restarted after 5 laps. I used to be within the storage watching on the monitor. Senna held the lead from Schumacher for a lap till he received to Tamburello on lap seven.

We noticed the TV footage… really the one reside TV image I noticed was one the place the automobile disappears behind a wall. I could not see it correctly as a result of it was a shot wanting again from Tosa. I could not see the precise influence however I may see the shit flying up and all the remainder of it. Then there was one other digicam shot of the crash and I instantly thought, ‘That was an enormous one.’ There’d been some large crashes at that nook earlier than, like Nelson Piquet in 1987 and Gerhard Berger’s Ferrari in 1989. These drivers had walked away.

I bear in mind it and after in all probability about 10 seconds I simply began saying, “Transfer, transfer.” We might seen Ayrton twitch contained in the automobile and that represented motion. So there was hope. Initially. Then there was nothing. It simply stopped. It turned apparent that there was a little bit of a difficulty however no person knew how severe it was.

They stopped the grand prix and I went as much as race management. I walked the size of the pitlane from the place we have been based mostly in the midst of the pits, as a result of we have been the world champions and we had the most important storage. As I walked, I began to register that it did not look superb and one of many guys from Arrows, I believe it was, patted me on the again as I went previous. I did not acknowledge it on the time however that made me suppose. I used to be starting to grasp that this may very well be actually severe.

I received to the officers’ workplace and it was a scene of managed panic. The officers may see that there was one thing large unfolding. There was a great deal of speak happening in garbled Italian; individuals have been talking at 100mph and it definitely wasn’t as organised as it’s now. It was all a bit totally different at Imola. No disrespect to the fellows there, however this was an enormous incident and there was whole pandemonium.

I used to be up there with a radio in communication with the workforce, as a result of Damon had gridded up prepared for the restart and the crew wanted to know what was happening. After a couple of minutes in race management Bernie Ecclestone turned up and began organising it. He was speaking to everybody, sorting issues out. He turned the point of interest of the entire thing.

I am adamant it occurred as a result of it was one of many first occasions a security automobile had been used; the tyre pressures have been low, the automobile was operating low anyway and it was stuffed with gas

He circled to me because it was all getting a bit fraught and stated, “What are you doing right here?” I advised him that I might come to see what was taking place with my driver and he simply circled and carried on with what he was doing. He was organising it and I hope he thought ‘honest sufficient’ and did not reply me. He left me there, which was wonderful.

A few unofficial experiences got here via that Ayrton had a damaged shoulder and that he had been knocked out, one thing alongside these traces. It got here from somebody within the management tower who may converse English. As soon as I had heard that, I made a decision to return to the workforce as a result of I wanted to go and inform Frank what was taking place. I advised him that though I might heard it third-hand, the report was that Ayrton was principally OK.

Within the meantime, Patrick and Adrian had been getting on with checking the distant knowledge, making an attempt to see what had occurred as a result of, by this time, there was an image of the steering column sitting on the sidepod of Ayrton’s automobile. They fairly rightly went via the info and advised Damon that they could not see something basically improper along with his automobile.

Finally, Ayrton’s automobile got here again to the garages. The officers impounded it, however someone, and I do not know who it was, insisted that we may pull the info off the automobile – or at the least get what we may as a result of it was all smashed up on that aspect. We have been capable of get some knowledge from it; it wasn’t an enormous quantity, but it surely was sufficient from what I perceive, and Damon determined to proceed within the second a part of the race. A giant man’s choice.

I went again as much as the organiser’s workplace however I am unable to actually bear in mind something concerning the race from that time onwards. I spent more often than not in race management looking for out from the individuals there what was happening. I knew by that stage that Ayrton had been taken off in a helicopter, clearly, however all people hoped for the perfect. We thought he may need been a bit smashed up, however that was the extent of it.

After some time in race management, I used to be referred to as into just a little aspect room the place there was this Italian lawyer who spoke actually good English. He advised me what the state of affairs was. He advised me that Ayrton had died in hospital.

In Italy they deal with it as a street site visitors accident and so impulsively I used to be the ‘accountable’ individual within the eyes of the legislation… I needed to signal a load of papers. The lawyer was superb and he went via all of it with me. It was a complete blur. I needed to go and get my passport, which they then took off me. Finally, they gave it again they usually have been OK with all the things. The individuals on the observe have been good but it surely took some time to undergo the entire course of.

By the point I received again all the way down to the storage, the flyaway Williams crew had gone residence and it was simply me and the truckies left, packing the issues away. I went in to see [Ecclestone’s Austrian caterer] Karl-Heinz Zimmermann as he was within the subsequent little bit of the paddock to me and we have been fairly pally as a result of I may converse the lingo.

He was in his little unit, very upset, however having a schnapps whereas he was at it. He is a correct bloke. He saved saying to me, “Come on Ian, you have to have a drink.” I bear in mind saying that I should not as a result of the boys have been nonetheless there packing up and I actually wanted to be there supporting them. I had to verify they have been alright and I assume I used to be on autopilot.

We might been staying in Faenza and the individuals on the resort had been nice. I managed to guide the remaining crew again right into a resort in Imola in a single day quite than go to the airport, which was no straightforward process within the days earlier than correct cell phones and web entry. We might all missed our flights, what with the delay.

I assume there have been about six of us, and we went out for a pizza. After I received again to the resort, I managed to pay money for Ann Bradshaw, who was Williams’ PR. She was on the airport and she or he advised me that they’d managed to discover a aspect room for the crew to get them out of the way in which of the press and all the things and that the fellows had received again to the UK and not using a downside.

PLUS: The PR legend who lived through Williams’ triumph and tragedy

Early the subsequent morning I received a name from one of many attorneys to say he was coming to choose me up and take me to the mortuary. I am nonetheless undecided why they wanted me to go, however I did what they stated.

After I arrived, Senna’s supervisor Julian Jakobi was there in addition to the man from Senna’s sponsor, Varig Airways. It turned clear that they have been organising all the things and it was all beneath management. The individuals on the mortuary requested if I might prefer to see Senna, however I stated no. I squared all the things with Julian. I took a taxi again to the airport. Lastly, I received on the flight residence.

I received again to Heathrow and no person was there. Usually there can be somebody to gather you however there wasn’t so I received a cab from Heathrow to Didcot. It was massively costly. I received in and the driving force was a typical good {old} London cabbie.

He checked out my equipment and noticed I used to be from Williams. He stated, “Hey mate, little bit of a shit weekend.” I simply routinely responded, “Yeah, yeah, it was,” and he advised me that he had the day by day newspapers within the cab if I wished to learn them. So I sat and skim the newspaper experiences on the way in which again to the manufacturing facility. I used to be simply considering that the entire state of affairs was so unhappy. So completely unhappy.

It wasn’t till I received residence and my spouse and youngsters got here to fulfill me on the entrance door that I simply fell aside. I completely misplaced it large time

After I received again to the manufacturing facility on Basil Hill Street in Didcot, it was wonderful. There have been about 200 individuals there and this was about 4pm. The entrance gates have been simply lined in flowers. I might by no means seen something prefer it. I really needed to get out of the cab to maneuver all of the flowers in order that the safety man may open the gates to let me in. Fortunately nobody knew who I used to be.

I received into the manufacturing facility and there was nobody there besides Patrick Head. Usually everybody can be in preparing for the subsequent race, however the place was nearly shut down. Though I used to be nonetheless on autopilot, it began to hit residence once I went to the abandoned manufacturing facility.

It was a bit unusual. Up till then, I would just been doing my job, after which I began to come back out of that mode. Patrick requested the way it had gone after the workforce left and I advised him all the things was sorted out. It wasn’t till I received residence and my spouse and youngsters got here to fulfill me on the entrance door that I simply fell aside. I completely misplaced it large time.

Then we have been into work at 8.30am the subsequent day. Peter Goodman, who was our firm lawyer, got here in and took statements from all people about what they might bear in mind from the weekend. The corporate supplied all people counselling however not one individual took it. The T-car and Damon’s automobile arrived again on Tuesday and by the Wednesday morning, everybody was again in and we received on with preparing for the subsequent race.

By Thursday evening, the workforce had run exams on the rig at Williams and tried to duplicate Ayrton’s accident from the info they’d been capable of get from his automobile. They tried to simulate a mechanical failure and, from my understanding, could not get it to look the identical as the info taken off the automobile.

I am adamant it occurred as a result of it was one of many first occasions a security automobile had been used; the tyre pressures have been low, the automobile was operating low anyway and it was stuffed with gas. If you happen to seemed on the in-car footage from Schumacher’s Benetton you would see the automobile was bottoming out actually badly from the restart. It was in all probability a mix of all these issues that brought on the shunt. I am not an engineer however I believe the factor bottomed out and Ayrton misplaced the entrance finish.

After Imola, we went to Monaco with only one automobile. No one, and I imply no person, wished to be there. Of any race that you have to do after what had simply occurred, we needed to go to bloody Monaco – probably the most troublesome one logistically on the calendar. The workforce needed to schlep 10 tonnes of equipment as much as the garages every morning and 10 tonnes again within the night. What an terrible set-up.

On the Friday, Karl Wendlinger went into the tip of the barrier and damage himself badly. To a person, the Williams crew all went and had dinner with the Sauber guys – and we did it fairly intentionally I suppose. We sat of their awning and tried to make dialog and assist them due to what we might been via two weeks earlier than. That was Williams and that is the form of individuals they’d. It was a pleasant gesture.

The entire environment of the place was down. I bear in mind on the drivers’ briefing that individuals have been speaking concerning the begin and the primary nook and the probability of an accident there. I form of misplaced it a bit. I stated we should always begin the race beneath a security automobile as a result of they have been involved about accidents at Ste Commit. I bear in mind Gerhard Berger saying no and we had what you may name ‘a full and frank dialogue’ about it. Wanting again, I believe it was simply the emotion popping out.

Damon put the automobile off on the primary lap with damaged entrance suspension after a conflict with Mika Hakkinen’s McLaren. The mechanics packed up immediately and I sat again within the motorhome, having a beer with Patrick Head and the engineers. We weren’t watching the race. I bear in mind Patrick simply turning spherical and saying, “Bloody hell, this stuff are noisy.” None of us wished to be there. It was a tough weekend to get via and Damon going out early wasn’t such a foul factor.

Once we received to Barcelona, the fifth race of the yr, we have been again as much as full energy and David Coulthard was within the second automobile. It was an unimaginable race and Damon gained. Schumacher had been caught in fifth gear for many of the race and even then you would see the bloke was going to be particular – however we did not care. We might gained. Williams had completed first and that was the race that received the momentum going. After that, we actually began to compete. It was an enormous end result for us.

I’ve really received a Renault video that was taken from simply over the opposite aspect of the pitwall. As Damon’s automobile crosses the road, there is a shot of me, Adrian Newey, John Russell and David Brown. In it, you’ll be able to see that Adrian and I simply crumble with the emotion of all of it – though Adrian recovered lots faster than I did, I’ve to say.

I needed to go on the rostrum with Damon to gather the successful constructors’ trophy. It was one of many nice privileges as workforce supervisor at Williams that I needed to go and do it. I had my Ray-Bans on as a result of I used to be a large number. I did not need individuals to see what a state I used to be in.

I simply saved feeling that we have been again and the automobile was higher. It felt like we might seen the sunshine on the finish of an terrible tunnel. After I might climbed on the rostrum and received the trophy, I returned to the workforce, went straight out to the again of the storage and simply bawled my eyes out. It received to the stage the place among the boys have been telling me to get a grip and toughen up, however in any case we might been via I simply could not assist it.

We have been simply starting to grasp him, starting to see how arduous he labored and the way decided he was

It is humorous how the emotion of that day comes again to me once I see a crash in Method 1. It actually makes me wince, and simply takes me straight again to that weekend at Imola. With Ayrton, we have been simply starting to grasp him, starting to see how arduous he labored and the way decided he was. I am completely satisfied that if he hadn’t been killed that weekend, he would’ve gained the 1994 world championship.

Like I stated, it was simply so completely unhappy. And are you aware one of many greatest regrets I’ve? We did not actually have time to get to know Ayrton Senna in any respect.
