Ayrton Senna

This game is an official Formula One license product with seven real teams and only 13 drivers from the 1992 F1 season because McLaren star driver Ayrton Senna was under contract with Sega and its Super Monaco GP II game. He is replaced in the game by Michael Andretti who drove for McLaren in 1993.
