This artwork, by famed racing artist Nicholas Watts, captures Senna racing against Piquet during the 1987 Monza Grand Prix. The Lotus Honda of Ayrton Senna runs wide at Parabolica while trying an inside overtake on Piquet. This handed Nelson Piquet in his Williams Honda the victory, and ultimately providing him with his third driver’s World Championship title.
This special release has been personally hand signed by artist Nicholas Watts as well as the great Ayrton Senna, the signatures are not copies, they are original. The artwork is an official reproduction from the original painting by Nicholas.
