senna_movie_-_uk_trailer

This is the story of the monumental life and tragic death of the legendary Brazilian motor racing Champion, Ayrton Senna. Spanning a decade from his arrival in Formula One in the mid 80's, the film follows Senna's struggles on the track against his nemesis, French World Champion Alain Prost, as well as off it, and against the politics he felt infested the sport.

Sublime, spiritual yet, on occasion ruthless, Senna conquers and transcends Formula One to become a global superstar. Privately, he is humble, almost shy, and fiercely patriotic, donating millions to his native Brazil and contemplating a life beyond motor racing. Then, at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix, his life ended in a fatal crash, making it the darkest weekend in the history of the sport, watched live on television by 300 million people.
