The first ever documentary about the life of Formula One driver Ayrton Senna, this is a must for racing fans. It charts the remarkable physical and spiritual achievements, on and off the track, of a man who became one of the sport's most famous personalities. From his opening season in 1984 to his untimely death in 1994, Senna was a racing sensation. This film explores the politics off the track and his rivalry with French World Champion Alain Prost. 'Senna' tells a remarkable story in a remarkable manner. It uses astounding footage from F1 archives (some of it never seen before) to deliver a more cinematic experience, and was made with the full cooperation of the Senna family.
