Three-time Formula One world champion Ayrton Senna joined Williams Renault at the start of 1994, only to be killed in the third race of the campaign in San Marino on May 1.
Coincidentally, for this season, Williams will again be powered by Renault engines for the first time since 1997 and in the cockpit will be Ayrton's nephew Bruno, who joined the Grove-based marque on Tuesday, believed to be on a one-year deal.
Despite the issues that surrounded Ayrton's death, and as a finger of suspicion was pointed at Williams at the time, there are no ill feelings towards the team from the Senna family.
"I believe things happen in life for a reason," said Bruno.
"There is no resentment from my family. Everybody is absolutely thrilled, so there's nothing negative. In fact, everybody is ecstatic. I spoke to my grandparents before I even spoke to my mother, and my grandmother was so happy, and my grandfather had a great smile.
"Everybody knows we've been fighting so hard for a chance in F1, and they're thrilled Williams have given me this opportunity.
"There is a great unity in our family, and everybody is super happy about it.
"It's a great pleasure for me to be driving for a team that has so much heritage and history in motor racing.
"Ayrton was here before, and there are many people here who were working when he was around.
"So it brings back some good memories, but hopefully we can create some good, new memories of our own, a good chapter in the history of the team.
"Hopefully we can start in a positive way and end in a much better way."
The additional focus and pressure are factors Senna has no doubts he can cope with, adding: "They have been a constant in my career.
"I've always had big pressure, always been in the spotlight for one reason or another.
"So it is something that has never been a problem. It has made me learn the hard way how to cope with pressure, and fortunately I've been able to."
Senna has admitted he began tentative talks with Williams during the Japanese Grand Prix last October before being put through a rigorous series of tests throughout December.
Senna is understood to have beaten the likes of Adrian Sutil and Jaime Alguersuari to the punch, replacing fellow Brazilian Rubens Barrichello whose 19-season F1 career now appears to be over.
"I've not had the chance to speak with Rubens yet," said Senna.
"But Rubens and I have had a great relationship ever since we met, and what has happened is motor racing, sport.
"There is always the chance that when one person goes in, it means another is going out.
"There are no personal feelings on that. It's just sport, and Rubens is well aware of that."
Speaking via his Twitter account, Barrichello was gracious enough to pass on his regards as he said: "I won't be driving the Williams car this year. I wish my friend @BSenna all the best ... the future is wide open."
Senna will partner Venezuelan Pastor Maldonado, with the duo one of the most inexperienced line-ups Williams have fielded, scoring just three points between them from 45 grands prix.
