The Life of Senna
On Sunday 1st May 1994, Ayrton Senna was leading the San Marino Grand Prix when suddenly his car veered inexplicably off the track at Tamburello bend. His Williams-Renault crossed over both the grass and concrete run-off strips before finally impacting the concrete wall. It is thought that the front of his head hit the concrete wall, forcing his helmet back on to the headrest and crushing the back of his head.
This book is about the life of Ayrton Senna, the three times Formula One world champion. It is the first proper story of a man the world revered and whose like will never be seen again. In this first full account of the life of Senna, the author and his collaborators examine each detail of the driving maestro’s life – from his earliest days to his first race, his pole positions and his world championships – as well as his death and its aftermath.
It is a story that has never been fully or properly told, and it is a story that needed to be told.
