Emerson Fittipaldi and Felipe Massa will carry out demonstration runs in classic cars raced by Ayrton Senna at next month’s Formula 1 fan festival in Brazil.
The Sao Paulo fan festival will take place on the afternoon of Saturday 9 November, the week prior to the Brazilian Grand Prix, inside the city’s Ibirapuera Park.
Fittipaldi and Massa will get behind the wheel of the Toleman TG184, raced by Senna in his debut F1 season in 1984, and the Lotus 97T that he took to his first win a year later.
There will also be demonstration runs from Mercedes and Renault in contemporary F1 machinery, with Mercedes development driver Esteban Gutierrez and Renault junior Caio Collet to represent the respective teams.
Fittipaldi claimed the Formula 1 world title in 1972 and 1974 while Massa finished runner-up to Lewis Hamilton in 2008.
“Ayrton Senna is a true legend of our sport and his legacy is both immense and inspiring,” said Formula 1 commercial chief.
“It is our honour to bring Formula 1 to the streets of Sao Paulo with our partners Heineken to celebrate his life and his importance to the people of Brazil.
“We will be celebrating his life by giving fans the chance to get up close and personal with modern and historic F1 cars that will give them a once in a lifetime experience of the speed, sound, and excitement that F1 has to offer.
“Brazil has a special place in the F1 family, and we are really excited to bring this event to Sao Paulo a week before the Grand Prix at Interlagos.
“Formula 1 is also delighted to announce that fellow Brazilian F1 hero’s Felipe Massa and Emerson Fittipaldi will be joining us to drive Senna’s historic cars.”
Senna remains Brazil’s most recent World Champion while this year marked a decade since a driver from the nation claimed victory at a grand prix.
