The story of Ayrton Senna and his rise to the highest echelons of motorsport reads like a slightly unrealistic Hollywood script – a young Brazilian boy who started life with such poor coordination that he needed medical tests goes on to learn how to drive a Jeep by the age of 7 (without use of the clutch), becomes the South American Kart Championship in 1977 and the Formula 1 World Champion by 1988.

Senna’s fatal accident in May 1994 sent shockwaves through Formula 1 that can still be felt today, no Formula 1 driver has been killed on track since Senna – largely because of safety improvements made to the sport as a direct result of his accident.
