After Senna was extracted from his car, he was transported to a hospital in nearby Bologna and declared dead four hours later.
"We are very honored and very sentimentally inspired that we are here," he said. "Senna is also in our hearts. Senna had a flag of Roland in his car and he wanted to honor him if he had won. ... This is the fifth time I'm here in Imola. But for my wife it's still very difficult to be here."
