"He was the greatest driver who ever lived",
This review is from: Senna [DVD]  (DVD)
A hugely enjoyable documentary film about Ayrton Senna's F1 career and his tragic death. I'm not even an F1 fan but I think everyone can admire the man's tenacity and sheer determination to be successful at what he truly loved. Senna was a self-confessed purist. He didn't care about money or fame. As the film illustrates, he was often disenchanted by all the nonsense attached to F1 (as well as other sports). I think Senna's humble character is summed up beautifully when, in the film, he is asked who his favourite driver is. He responds, not by naming one of his high profile colleagues on the F1 circuit, but by citing a man he used to drive with in his homeland of Brazil. Not only was Senna a fantastic competitor but he was also a good man, never forgetting his roots. The phrase "they don't make 'em like they used to" is often over used. Not in this case.

Terry Fullerton was his team mate at DAP during his karting years. They raced together in the world karting championships. Terry Fullerton is from the UK not Brazil. Senna Forever RIP

I didn't say he was Brazilian.
