I have been a Formula 1 fan ever since I first started watching F1 on TV with my German born mother back in the 1970's. Senna was a true champion during a time in Formula 1 that included some of the finest race drivers the world has ever seen, including the likes of Prost, Mansell and Lauda. The Senna-Prost rivalry was and is regarded as one of the most intense rivalry in sports history. Senna's presence over Formula 1 was dominant, and his death at Imola in 1994 shook Formula 1 like no other event. His memory is still alive for those of us who watched in awe his amazing racing. But what jumps out and grabs you in this extremely well done film is his forceful personality, intellect, spirit and faith in God. His legacy is intact and this film is a superb effort to honor and remember a truly gifted individual who excelled in a very difficult and hazardous sport. He left us too soon, but this captures the memories and for that his fans are grateful. Senna WINS!!!

I always watched Formula 1 with my family when I was a child, and one of the reasons was Ayrton Senna. However, he was not just a great race driver - he was charismatic, brave, honest and a great human being. At that time, when I was 10 years old, I did not understand why so many people loved him so much - including myself and my family. Watching this movie made me understand why Ayrton Senna, a Formula 1 race driver - not the most popular sport in Brazil - is so famous around the world and was considered a hero in my country. I got tense, happy, sad, completely involved by this movie! It is spectacular how the director put all the moments of Ayrton Senna's life together! I loved it, and I recommend this movie for everybody, not just people that like Formula 1.

Having lived in Brazil, in Sao Paulo, from 1977 to 1999, I was extremely priviledged to witness first hand the phenomenon that was Ayrton Senna. My interest in Formula I started back in the early 1960's when living in London. I followed the racing career of the likes of Graham Hill and Jackie Stewart either at Brands Hatch or Silverstone. Arriving in Brazil my attention was drawn to Brazilian racing with Emerson Fittipaldi and I started attending races at Sao Paulo's Interlagos race track. The first time I saw Ayrton Senna I knew I was witnessing a true racing stand out. So young but yet so mature in his driving skills, he was truly something to be amazed by. As his career developed, I became equally proud as any Brazilian did as his skill and his personal conduct. This documentary is a true portrayal of the person that he was and the extraordinary racing driver that he was ... for me, no-one ever came close to his talent. As the closing few minutes of the film portrayed, Ayrton was the hero of literally 200,000,000 Brazilians who faced all forms of hardships. But count in that group even the rich Brazilians and a British subject like myself. My grief for the loss of this man is still very deep.
