One of the few household names in motor-racing, Brazilian hero Ayrton Senna won the Formula One World Grand Prix three times. He died at the age of 34 in a crash while leading the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. This tragic event was watched live on TV by 300 million people.
British director Asif Kapadia's first feature-length documentary traces Senna's incredible journey from go-kart racing in his native Brazil to the heady heights of the Formula One championships.
The film charts Senna's bitter, long-running rivalry with the French driver and reigning world champion Alain Prost, which led to collisions on the track and accusations that safety was being compromised. As Kapadia explores the politics of Formula One, we learn more about Senna himself: -- a humble and spiritual man, he could also be a ruthless perfectionist.
