…and I see there is a new Netflix biopic series coming out soon. Trailer just appeared. Their ‘Drive to Survive’ F1 series has been a big success so I suppose this taps into that audience. The Asif Kapadia is enough for me, but then I am no great F1 fan.

A terrible weekend, first Roland Ratzenberger and then Ayrton Senna. And before this on Friday, Barrichello had a really serious accident that could have proved fatal. The only good thing to come out of this tragic weekend is that safety became more prominent and the work started by J Stewart and Sid Watkins became a priority.

Maybe Senna is one of the OP’s relatives. Each year we get mum and dad, so why not Cousin Ayrton?

This thread led me to a fascinating website, so we can have a new thread every day.

“You know I’ll be honest with you. I was never a Senna fan. I always thought Gilles Villeneuve was the greatest racing driver of them all. But to make this film I’ve watched hours and hours and hours of footage and the thing is Villeneuve was spectacular on a number of occasions, Senna was spectacular every single time he got in a car” Jeremy Clarkson
