Undoubtedly, Goodyear and Ayrton Senna have everything to get ahead, “says Irenaeus Villanoeva Junior, marketing manager of the Institute .

Senna, one of the biggest names in world motorsport,  won the Formula 1 season in 1988, 1990 and 1991, the period in which Goodyear was the official tire supplier to the main category of motorsport.
