"Picking a winner was difficult, near impossible, but Henri Toivonen was one of the favorites. Still on a high and enjoying it all so much, he relaxed one evening by taking Grand Prix driver Jonathan Palmer on a few laps of the Estoril track in his Delta S4. In pouring rain, and at night, the Finn startled Palmer somewhat with the sheer performance of the racer, some unofficial estimates suggesting
that the lap times would have had them somewhere on the front half of the grid for the "wet" 1985 Portuguese Formula One race. Senna's pole in the rain in 1985 was 1.21.007. Senna's pole in the dry in 1986 was 1.16.673.
