Senna

Nearly everyone interested in Formula One during the last two decades knows the accomplishments of Ayrton Senna with 3 World Championships, 65 Pole positions and countless other records in a career that ended tragically in 1994. In the October 20th post I wrote about the Monaco GP in 1984 and witnessing his astounding drive in the rain. In 1985 he moved to Lotus and again there were moments of uncanny brilliance. It was clear something special and important was happening.  All the drivers I encountered were intense individuals with phenomenal powers of concentration and focus but Senna seemed at times more enigmatic and inward as if he were the sole inhabitant of his own universe.
