The documentary on the late Ayrton Senna has secured three nominations ahead of the British Academy Film Awards, which take place at the Royal Opera House in London next month.

The film will go up against My Week with Marilyn, Shame, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and We Need to Talk About Kevin for outstanding British film, while it is also nominated for best documentary alongside Project Nim and George Harrison: Living in the Material World.

Senna is one of five films seeking to secure the BAFTA for editing.

"Senna given 3 @BAFTA nominations!" director Manish Pandey wrote on Twitter. "Can't remember a doc that was as honoured. Thank you to the British Academy."

Senna has already secured a number of honours, having picked up awards at the Sundance Film Festival and Los Angeles Film Festival.
