PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE POSTING YOUR PERSONAL GUESSINGS ABOUT WHAT CAUSED THE ACCIDENT!!!
It was DETERMINED IN A LEGAL COURT that a poor job in the welding of the sterring bar caused this to break in the middle of Tamburello and caused the crash. Also it is NOT TRUE that Senna died because only of the injury caused by the piece of metal piercing the helmet. Instead what is true is that, added to the force of the impact that caused irreversible brain injury, were the causes for his death.
THERE IS NOTHING BETTER THAN MAKING YOURSELVES A GOOD PREVIOUS RESEARCH INSTEAD OF POSTING HERE THE TYPICAL COMMENTS “I THINK HE DIED BECAUSE A, B, C,.. Z. There was a trial and WILLIAMS team have been found GUILTY.
Last lap in Ayrton Senna’s life, before crashing at Imola-San Marino GP in 1994. The steering column broke and the steering wheel came into Senna’s hands before the crash, causing his death when the car hit the wall at the Tamburello corner. Patrick Head, Chief Engineer of the Williams team has been found guilty in the reopened trial in 2005 for Senna’s death, but he never went to jail because too many years passed since the accident and the legal cause had prescribed.
“The Williams team was entangled for many years in a court case with the Italian prosecutors over manslaughter charges, ending in a guilty verdict for Patrick Head. The Italian Court of Appeal, on April 13, 2007, stated the following in the verdict numbered 15050: “It has been determined that the accident was caused by a steering column failure. This failure was caused by badly designed and badly executed modifications. The responsibility of this falls on Patrick Head, culpable of omitted control”. Even being found responsible for Senna’s accident, Patrick Head wasn’t arrested: in Italy the statute of limitation for manslaughter is 7 years and 6 months, and the final verdict was pronounced 13 years after the accident.”
