Senna died following an accident while leading the San Marino Grand Prix for Williams on May 1 1994 and to mark the anniversary Jake Humphrey laid a flower from his garden at the Norwich home where the Brazilian used to live before he entered F1.

Senna, who went onto drive for Toleman, Lotus, Mclaren and Williams, had lived there while racing single seaters back in 1981.

Mr Humphrey tweeted: “People around the world are remembering the great #AyrtonSenna today. I've just taken a flower from my garden & laid it here as a mark of respect.”

That tragic weekend also saw the death of Austrian driver Roland Ratzenberger who was killed in an accident during qualifying.
