A rare piece of Ayrton Senna memorabilia will soon be coming under the hammer, at RM/Sothebys biennial Monaco auction scheduled on May 12.

The legendary Brazilian driver wore this bright yellow race suit on the day he conquered his very first Monaco Grand Prix win, driving for Team Lotus in 1987.

The prized possession is signed by Senna on the suit's Bank Nacional patche, which only adds to the value of this tangible piece of F1 history.
