Overview

When Ayrton Senna slammed into the wall at the 1994 F1 San Marino Grand Prix, he was at the front of the pack. The golden boy of Brazil - perhaps the best driver in the world at the time - died on international television.

Senna is the first installment in a trilogy of narrative biopics from award-winning documentarian Asif Kaspadia, whose other works have focused on similarly revered figures like Amy Winehouse and Diego Maradona. Through an impressive collection of racing footage, old interviews, videos of driver's meetings, and clips from family albums, Kaspadia brings the racing legend to life.

"And if you no longer go for a gap that exists, you are no longer a racing driver because we are competing... we are competing to win."
