Ayrton Senna da Silva is one of F1’s all-time greats. A Brazilian racing driver who won the Formula One World Drivers’ Championship in 1988, 1990, and 1991.

Senna won 41 Grand Prix and took 65 pole positions, with the latter being the record until 2006.

Senna lost his life on May 1, 1994, in the San Marino Grand Prix, where his race-leading Williams inexplicably speared off the Imola track and hit the concrete wall at Tamburello corner. Millions saw it happen on television.

“You commit yourself to such a level where there is no compromise. You give everything you have, everything, absolutely everything.”

– Ayrton Senna.

To this day Senna is an icon of F1 with his colours easily spotted amongst the fans at any race weekend.
