Senna's Helmet Released - And Destroyed

According to the wishes of the Senna Family and BRE, the helmet was destroyed on the same day in Bologna by incineration in presence of Mme Cohen-Kindt and Senna Family representatives.
It's only appropriate, isn't it. I dont think the car should be destroyed - but the helmet - that is part of Ayrton, and will only serve to remind us of the horrors of that terrible weekend. This is a good decision I believe, but I hope that the car is just locked up, I dont think it should be destroyed - it's perhaps THE BIGGEST peiece of F1 history there is.

I've read that Williams are keeping Ayrtons FW16 somewhere in Grove - apparently, its stored somewhere that few people know even exists...

The Williams chassis in which Senna was killed has also been released by the Italian authorities and we believe that this has also been destroyed by the team to avoid any unseemly trading at any point in the future.

Thanks God they got rid of that helmet.
About the chassis... I think that it should be destroyed too.

I agree about the helmet, but as for the chassis.
They could always use it for research on the Senna film. That's if it hasn't already been destroyed.

Yeah, but this is a wicked world. Senna's sister told that they have been asked to sell the helmet and other pieces from that tragedy, and it was a lot of money. But they refused telling that no money is worth enough, even if for the starving children...

This was in todays Autosport magazine:

"The Williams FW16 which Ayrton Senna was driving when he was killed at Imola in 1994 has been destroyed by the Williams team. Helmet manufacturer Bell has returned the helmet the three-times champion was wearing at the time of the accident. It was incinerated last week."

I'm not surprised both have been destroyed.

I'm glad that both are/have been destroyed. Like the rest of you I don't like the idea of vast amounts of money being paid in years to come.

Thank God that some people still have morals, those who want to profit from Sennas death are just sick.

Yeah, overall probably the best solution. Now the last parts of that awful weekend almost eight years ago have finally been laid to rest.

RIP Ayrton.

Wow, I am speechless after reading all the comments you people have written. Personally, I am still undecided as to what to think about Senna's death related artifacts.

On the one hand, I kinda agree that with most of you that you don't want someone to make $$$ off his accident related stuff. OTOH, if I saw some Senna crash artifact, in a museum for example, I would just reflect about how great a driver he was.

OTOH, judging from everyone's responses, I guess remembering the crash is just too painful???

Of course, no offense was intended with my comments. Just some of my thoughts.
