Check out this gallery showcasing the first F1 car Ayrton Senna ever drove.

Before committing to a team, Senna tested for McLaren, Brabham and Williams before choosing to race with Toleman. It was Williams for whom he tested first, and this was the very car in which he did it, putting the car through its paces at Donington Park on July 19th, 1983.
