Ayrton Senna & Roland Ratzenberger lost their lives 24 years ago.
Formula 1 kept Ayrton Senna & Roland Ratzenberger in their thoughts on Tuesday, marking the 24th anniversary of the black weekend at Imola 1994 where both men lost their lives in separate crashes – Ratzenberger on the Saturday during qualifying, Senna while leading the race on Sunday.
Taking to Twitter, many of the teams, drivers and media personnel who raced against and with both men paid tribute to them.

1 May 1994. A very sad day, and of course tragic weekend. I wish we could still talk motor racing today 😔 pic.twitter.com/xv6qAxLTc3
