    I started watching F1 during the Hakkinen vs Schumacher era in the late 90s. So I have to admit all i knew about Senna was that he was from Brazil, a multi-world champion, arch rival of Alain Prost. I knew he was good. But i guess he was really really good and well respected guy when all the whos who in F1 today say he was the best!!

    Loved it. If you're an F1 fan, you have to see it. Lots of cool old footage...definitely a different world than the F1 we know today.

    He elevated the level of competition, dedication, intensity, etc to new heights. He seems (IMHO) to be the first 'modern' F1 driver. I would say that the current top guys are every bit as good as Senna was; because that is what is required to stay at the top nowadays. But Senna made that high level the 'norm'.

    Top Gear - Ayrton Senna Tribute 15x05 5-5 - SAPO Vídeos

    This is another Top Gear clip for Senna.It is very interesting what Ham says at the end.
    1200 hp with manual transmission,and you know that if you make a mistake there is a big chance you are seriously injured or even killed.
    Back in the days it took balls and tallent and so much other things to even drive one of those cars at race speed.In my opinion pretty much everybody can jump in a modern formula and learn to drive it fast.Dont take it literally though

    Halfway through, not sure who is the bigger asshole, Senna or Prost. Gotta love how the race officials look like mobsters.

    I got the Portuguese version without English subtitles. luckily the majority of it were in English. Good stuff, it was worth the 2 hours and 40 minutes.

    Actually thought this was not a particularly great movie. I grew up watching F1 and Senna (mid 80's) and has always been a hero figure to me as a result.

    There was some good old footage here but overall felt that it was a pretty boring and poorly paced documentary.

    I found it very interesting and was able to comfortably sit through almost 3 hrs of it probably because i was learning the Prost / Senna drama from scratch. would hv been even better if it had subtitles.

    You know, I'm glad I'm not the only one that felt that way. We got a big C-band satellite in 1984 which (in the days before signal encryption) allowed us to pick us the feeds being beamed back to the studios here (which was great... you got to hear what folks really thought during commercial breaks) so I "grew up" with the rise of Senna. So the memories were nice, but I was sad that there was (aside from a few karting shots) nothing of the F3 days.

    I actually thought Clarkson's 15 minute tribute (done with a lot of input from Martin Brundle) was at least as good.

    Agreed. Clarkson's one was pretty solid with all the interviews.

    I am revising my opinion! I'm not sure if there are several versions of this movie floating around, but the 'latest' one that I just saw is fantastic. The original one I saw had lots of sit-down interviews with various people which was completely uninteresting.

    The 'latest' version is entirely footage and is excellent, brings back a lot of memories watching F1 as a youth.
