Ayrton Senna's autographs are highly sought after. There are many fans in Brazil and around the world. Consequently, there are also many forged autographs or reproductions. We collectors know this and are very careful. This autograph is only the third one I have acquired. All were acquired in France, after long research. The aforementioned autograph, in addition to having unquestionable graphic characteristics, also has an excellent provenance. It was obtained by a former magazine employee who worked in the postal department.

In 1988, Senna won his first world title, losing to Prost in 1989 and winning the next two. In 1990, he achieved his second world title, again after an intense battle with Alain Prost, his eternal rival, and the famous accident caused by Senna, in Suzuka, in October.

Before that, in July, Prost won three consecutive races, while the Brazilian, third in the French and British Grands Prix, was second in the championship, two points behind. It was on the occasion of this French Grand Prix, that Senna went to visit the sports magazine L'Équipe, to meet the journalists, take photos and sign some covers (an estimated ten, the only known one being this one) of this special edition about him, published on the eve of the Brazilian Grand Prix, a few months earlier, in March.

Created in 1946, the French sports magazine L'Équipe awards the Champion of Champions trophy in December of each year to the most successful “World” athletes. Ayrton Senna precisely won this important distinction in 1990, the year of this exceptional autograph from the driver who became a Brazilian and, beyond that, international idol.
