Ayrton Senna remembered on 20th death anniversary

People take pictures as they visit an exhibition which pays tribute to Brazilian''s F1 driver Ayrton Senna during a ceremony to commemorate the 20th anniversary of his death in Imola.

Fans and Formula One drivers past and present marked the 20th anniversary of the death of Ayrton Senna today at the Italian circuit where the triple champion crashed 20 years ago.

Hundreds paid their respects with a minute's silence at the Tamburello corner at 2.17 p.m., the moment the Brazilian's Williams ploughed into the wall while leading the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix.

Austrian rookie Roland Ratzenberger had died the previous day when he crashed during qualifying and the two remain the last driver fatalities during a grand prix weekend.

The circuit near Bologna was opened to the public with tribute events scheduled in Imola, including a memorial football match and the naming of a square, over the next four days.

A mass, attended by Ratzenberger's parents, was held last night.
