Pierre Gasly won the hearts of the fans in the 2020 season. The Frenchman was left with the victory in the Grand Prix of Monza, after taking advantage of a sanction imposed on Lewis Hamilton. After a tough battle with Carlos Sainz, Gasly achieved his first victory in Formula 1. In addition, had a special tribute to one of his idols, Ayrton Senna, during the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.
The AlphaTauri rider presented at the Imola circuit, a helmet in commemoration of the Brazilian idol. This was because at that circuit, on May 1, 1994, Ayrton Senna lost his life after hitting the dangerous Tamburello curve. Since that day, Senna became a legend and many fans leave flowers and a memory on the walls where Williams impacted.
However, the tribute did not stop there. The Frenchman communicated in the last hours through his social networks that the helmet he used in the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix will be auctioned. All the proceeds that arise from that helmet (and other objects) will be donated to entities that support the education of children in Brazil, as confirmed by the pilot.
“I am very proud to announce that I have partnered with the Senna brand to raise money for the Foundation. I have donated my helmet from the Imola Grand Prix race to the Senna family to auction and raise more for the foundation. We have also produced some scale mini helmets. Part of the profit will go to the Foundation “, commented the French.
To close, Gasly was happy to help those most in need. “I love contributing to this great cause that supports the education of millions of children and young people in Brazil, and I hope that you too will join,” he exclaimed. The Ayrton Senna Foundation It has been working since the pilot’s death and is one of the most important in Brazil.
