When Anime & Formula 1 Collide...

Okay, sure, they changed the colors, probably for copyright reasons, but no question about it: that's the same poster.  And, in case you're wondering, that's Ayrton Senna's 1993 McLaren MP4-8 featured.  Unfortunately, Senna didn't drive in the 1994 Monaco GP, since he was killed in that terrible weekend in San Marino... the race before Monaco.
