Marking the 25th anniversary of Ayrton Senna's death
The life of enigmatic Brazilian motor racing champion Ayrton Senna is tracked in this fascinating high-octane documentary. From his arrival in Formula One in the mid 1980s, the film details his struggles both on the track against his rival, French World Champion Alain Prost, and off it, against the internal politics of the sport. Tragically he is struck down in his prime at Imola on the blackest weekend in the history of the sport, watched live on television by 300 million people.
