Best book I have read about Ayrton Senna,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Memories of Senna: Anecdotes and Insights from Those Who Knew Him (Hardcover)
This book is terrific, some of the anecdotes about him rally driving are fascinating but the information from various engineers about how Senna worked with them and how clever he was with setting up his car with regards to tyres amd how the car would behave is quite simply remarkable.
Not just this but the book has time to speak to all the main people who worked with him, whether it be the press, other drivers, mechanics, team owners, Bernie Ecclestone and Ron Dennis among many to show a multi-faceted opinion on what made Senna such a fascinating person on and off the track.
As has been said, this is not a book for statistics (thought Tom Rubython's Life of Senna was ok for this reason), it is book that shows why Ayrton Senna Da Silva will be remembered as a driver of not only tremendous talent (he is the greatest ever F1 driver in my opinion then with Fangio second and Jim Clark third), but he will be remembered as a man who's support of charities transcended the sport he was in particularly the Ayrton Senna Foundation which helps underpriveleged Brazilian children with education every day.
Christopher Hilton has written a terrific book that makes you laugh, cry and think throughout reading it about just what Formula 1 is missing today with Senna not here, he is very sadly missed.
In short, great book.
