England - Just over three decades ago, Ayrton Senna - one of the greatest Formula 1 drivers - raced the 99T to Lotus' final Grand Prix win of all time. 

Senna proudly sported a bright yellow race suit during the first of his six Monaco Grand Prix wins, and seven other podium finishes that season. 

This race suit, worn by Ayrton Senna, during the 1987 F1 season, is up for auction at Sotherby

RM Sotheby's said: "The certificate states that this suit was given by Senna to the brother of his physiotherapist who kept it as the 'lucky charm' of his store for several years before selling it in Canada.

"The suit then was sold again to a gallery in Monaco, where it currently resides.

"A reminder of Ayrton Senna's incredible talent and indelible mark on Formula 1, this race suit offers the chance to own a tangible piece of F1 history."
