Aryton Senna

If you’re a racing fan and have never heard of Ayrton Senna then you should be ashamed of yourself. You see Senna is widely known as the greatest Formula 1 driver that ever lived. The Brazilian driver was a three-time F1 world champion and possessed talent behind the wheel of a car that was simply astounding. Looked upon by his rivals as one of their fiercest competitors, Ayrton Senna would do whatever it took to win a race. In the rain he was ruthless and in the dry he would commit his car to situations that few would only dare. Senna was killed in a crash at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix, but his legacy in racing lives on. Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear UK may be one of the most opinionated and sarcastic moto-journalists out there, but he’s also one of the best which is why the following video is so damn good. Clarkson not only gives us a recap of Senna’s amazing career, but tells his story like it should be told; with admiration. Click through for the video.

    If one was lucky enough to be around – and a fan of racing when this man was in F1; I don’t believe it is possible to watch this video without having a 15 minute lump in their throat. He was simply the best among many greats of the time; and I consider myself fortunate to have watched him. Just…amazing.

    Think what you will about Clarkson – and I’m not his biggest fan – but he is passionate, and a gifted storyteller. A great video; one of your best posts – thanks!

    I remember seeing this clip on UK’s Top Gear but when it came to the US broadcast version, they cut it from the episode. DAMN YOU BERNIE!!!!!
