Great colour photo of the 1987 Camel Lotus Honda Formula One team posed in the pit lane at Rio de Janiero before the 1987 Brazilian GP.
In the centre of the photo are the drivers Ayrton Senna and Saturo Nakajima, designer Gerard Doucarouge and team boss Peter Warr.The 1988 Lotus Formula One car featured the all-conque ring Honda V6 Turbo engine thanks to the presence in the team of Honda favorite, Nakajima. Ayrton Senna managed to win with the car at Monaco but generally the combination was not quite up to the level of the Williams FW11s of Mansell and Piquet which dominated the season.
This was the final Grand Prix winning car from the famous Team Lotus stable. Senna signed for McLaren a the end of the season and Honda engines went into that car too, Williams being left high and dry without a factory engine despite winning the world title in 1987!
