Anyone has a pic of Senna’s 50th pole car nose?

Postby JamesB » Thu Nov 19, 2020 10:00 am

You know it was at Jerez, 1990, McLaren put a special commemorative “50th” sticker on the MP4/5B nose. Can’t find one picture though I’ve seen it.
Anyone please???

This is Spain 1990 and I don't see any different sticker on the nose. Between Goodyear and McLaren there is something I can't identify but looks the same than Brazil

Spain, race

That's it! :D Thanks Malc!
Sure he did not race with it, sorry not to have clarified. That was done for this, celebrations, cake, etc.
I remember a pic (just the nose) on magazine auto1. Joaquin, you surely remember it (the mag, maybe not the pic) :D

Was the 50 for Senna, I seem to remember it was to do with Shell because this picture withe nose is from Mexico 1990 I think. Also if it was for Senna I don't think Gerhard would be quite so prominent.

Dave, you are right the number 50 celebrates 50 years of Honda, photo taken at the Mexican GP.

EDIT
...... Or so I thought, the internet can not agree on the photo caption.
I now don't know what the 50 means!

Mexico was the 50th win for Agip as an oil supplier.
But I do not know for what the 50 on McLaren stands for. :?:

It was also the 100th Senna GP.

Been having a look into this and I now believe the 50 is marking the fiftieth victory by Shell and Mclaren together at the previous Grand Prix in Canada.
