Whatever happened to Senna's Sonic trophy? We asked - and McLaren responded
First viewing of iconic Donington '93 trophy in 25 years
On the 11th of April, 25 years to the day since Ayrton Senna took that now legendary win in the wet at Donington, we asked, where had the Sonic the Hedgehog trophy gone?
In a clever PR stunt by race sponsor SEGA, Sonic was presented to Senna on the podium, ahead of him getting the proper trophy.
Clearly, Ron Dennis would not want something so brash on display with all the other trophies in the McLaren reception, so after the race it was put away, never to be seen again.
We think this piece of F1 history needs to be on display, not stuck in a cupboard.
Come on McLaren, get the hedgehog out front where he belongs!
