Saw the movie. Have seen the drivers back to Rindt and Clark. Dying was a good career move for Senna. He was fast and flashy, but couldn't beat Prost in the same equipment and only a *****ic system that dropped scores gifted him the title same as it did Surtees in '64, collisions or not! He prayed for rain, it did give him quite an edge. Funny how without it, he was imminently beatable.On that 1989 collision, Just thought I'd mention that Senna, had he won instead of being disqualified, he would have had to win the last race of the year as well and he did not, he crashe into Brundle instead, as was typical of his wrecklessness, so Prost the collision, For whic Senna was officially reprimanded, had no effect on the eventual outcome. Senna's ramming Prost in 1990 did affect the championship.

typical joeh:

You have a flawed logic, don't try too hard. If people like Senna are disgraceful then what about the people like you, with loose and lousy tongues/thoughts? One should weigh the words before letting them loose else people like you have no purpose in living a life, as 'educated' humans! If you don't know then you must ask someone who knows about it better or you must do your homework more before accusing/tarnishing any legend.

BTW, am yet to get married.

@Sukhoi 46 when you admit to driving a car at least 100 mph into a corner and taking out another driver it is a criminal act , got it . regardless of what politics promted it. Go and have your wife drive to the store and have your neighbor who does not like something about you or her and "take her out " i think you would change your way of thinking . senna is just as disgraceful as flavio and piquet jr , scuz that had no place in F1

ps god your moniker says it all narcissist ( you can't argue with a fool )

andrew, am disappointed with you.

@Does the movie include senna admitting ( months later) that he intentionally "took out" his own team mate in Japan . A criminal behavior that endangered himself, other drivers , track marshal's and spectators. No wonder that Mansell declined to go to his funeral. Fast is good ,wreckless is bad. senna fans cannot or will not acknoledge this FACT.

Criminal what? Are you high on something or what? Or maybe you should be a Schumacher fan. Anyway, Do you remember the complete story? A year before? A biased FIM French president's infamous act? All the other events which lead to that crash? Mansell declined? So what? His arch rival Prost was there. But did you watch how highly Mansell spoke about Senna, many times? Need a proof?

Cas, great comment.

The greatest, or not (I believe yes, personally), he was one of a kind and our sport needs more like him.

We are all entitled to our opinion, but how anyone (Joeh!) could mention him in the same breath as Mansell??? Today, they make much anticipated movies about Senna, Mansell is telling his sons they are great and doing moneysupermarket ads!

It's interesting how some people attempt to rationalise why people disagree with them.

I mean, to try to say he is favoured because he is dead is more than a little strange if you actually watched F1 pre-1994.

There is more than a little desperation creeping in here.

Yes Senna was flawed, we all are. I never remember any boring races with Senna, Prost, Mansell etc even quali was a joy to watch!

If I had to explain it I'd say most racing drivers "drive" schumacher included. The best of them, the top 1%'s -the Senna & Prost's race every time they get in a car they cant help it,

I'm not going to pretend Senna wasnt a ruthless competitor or that he wouldnt take someone off any more than I would defend schumacher (I'm not his biggest fan)

theres a new champion every 12 months, most of them fade in to the past -as i'm sure Button, Alonso etc will do in time, but it says a lot about Senna that not only do we still talk about him, but we still argue over him.

Ayrton is my hero, always has been and always will be and they will NEVER be another racing driver like him. Not only as a driver but as a person. A man who stood up for what was right and what he belived in, a man of strong morals, passion and will to win at all costs.

I for one am so proud to have him as my idol and I will not hold back on the tears when I see this film because they will be be tears of happiness of a life that touched and blessed mine in a way that I will be eternally grateful.

Rest in peace Ayrton. Forever Senna.
