Ayrton Senna

Watching the Senna documentary on the plane the other day brought back memories. Apart from my parents, I think watching Ayrton race every weekend while studying was what got me through university. So just a small and humble tribute from me:

“Wealthy men can’t live in an island that is encircled by poverty. We all breathe the same air. We must give a chance to everyone, at least a basic chance.” – Ayrton Senna

“You will never know the feeling of a driver when winning a race. The helmet hides feelings that cannot be understood.” – Ayrton Senna

“He was the best driver who ever lived.” – Niki Lauda

“Ayrton Senna was an extraordinary racing driver. His skills, craft, subtlety and courage were of such magnitude that he dwarfed his generation of drivers.” – Ron Dennis

“I was proud to compete against him. Professionally, he was the only driver I respected. In Senna’s honour, I will never sit in a Formula One car again.” – Alain Prost (Senna’s team mate and rival)

21.3.60 – 1.5.94
