About the McLaren MP4/8:
After McLaren had lost the championship to Williams at the end of the 1992 season, McLaren welcomed the 1993 season with a Ford HB engine and other high-tech systems, as well as the CART champion Michael Andretti. The MP4 / 8 was in principle an MP4 / 7 with changes to improve the aerodynamics, such as a high nose and bargeboards. Senna was able to win the second, third and sixth rounds. Unlike Williams, Benetton proved to be a strong threat to the team. Despite all the negative factors, Senna was able to win 5 races at the end thanks to his driving technique and the strong aerodynamic abilities of the car. Senna thus achieved second place in the drivers' world championship.
