Senna’s Art & Genius


The genius of the new documentary film Senna is not in the retelling of the heart breaking tale of a 34-year old man killed at the height of his success. That’s the story that’s been told in news reports — how three-time F1 World Champion Ayrton Senna was leading the San Marino Grand Prix in May 1994, when an ill-fated turn of his Williams-Renault open-wheel car resulted in his untimely death. What stands out in “Senna” is a fully developed portrait of the Brazilian man who was perhaps Formula One’s best driver of all time, a driver who managed to succeed on his own terms, waving his country’s flag at every opportunity.
