Top 10 Formula 1 drivers' cars

Motorious Logo By Elliot Wood of Motorious | Slide 1 of 10: There are some drivers who become synonymous with a vehicle, and for Ayrton Senna that is the Honda NSX. But his association with Honda is well-trodden ground, and Senna actually put his name and face to a car long before then.
In 1984, Senna’s first season in F1 with Toleman, he helped promote the third generation of the Ford Escort in his home country, as well as owning one himself. The advert summarised the car in four sentences, translated into English, which most Senna fans would relate to his whole life: ‘Look at the face of the brave. Feel the machine inside. Hear the beating heart. Emotion in every way.’
Senna later had a relationship with Audi selling cars in Brazil, as well as worldwide promotion of the NSX, which was famously redesigned to accommodate his feedback.
