    The greatest motor racer ever,to think of his skill in pushing those era cars to the absolute limit, awesome. Just look at some of the onboard car footage especially around monaco having to change gears with one hand off the steering wheel, LEGEND.

    Great tribute article, very well written. I admire Ayrton not only for his driving skill but for the things he did off track. Anyone who can not draw some type of inspiration from his life is truly lost.

    Senna was the best ever but you have got a fact wrong in this article; Senna began karting when he was four years old, not thirteen

    Thanks for doing this article.
    Wish he was still here...growing old gracefully and fishing somewhere in Brazil while watching his kids grow up.
    It was just too painful losing Ayrton, Roland and almost Rubens on that horrible weekend.
