Ayrton Senna Wins "Molson Grand Prix of Canada" - June 10, 1990

June 10, 1990
1990, like the year before, was a rain-soaked event, and it saw a number of accidents. The race was won for the second time by Brazilian driver Ayrton Senna driving a McLaren MP4/5B. It was Senna's third win for the season having won the season-opening United States Grand Prix and the Monaco Grand Prix just two weeks earlier. Senna won by ten seconds over fellow Brazilian Nelson Piquet who drove a Benetton B190. Three second further back in third was British driver Nigel Mansell driving a Ferrari 641.

The win allowed Senna to gain a twelve-point lead in the drivers' championship over his McLaren team mate Gerhard Berger.
