Default 1st May, remembering the greatest racer of all time: Ayrton Senna

Today 1st May, 19yrs ago I still remember vividly as I watched live on TV the horror that unfolded as Senna went off at 300kph and hitting the wall hard at Tamburello, Imola while leading the 1994 San Marino GP. I remember after the impact still waiting for him to climb out like he always did, but only saw his head fell to the side of the cockpit. Seconds and minutes flew with him still completely motionless, I then realized that it's gonna be bad. Truly a sad day as the world of sport mourn the loss of the greatest racer of all time!

RIP Ayrton!

Here's a cool tribute of Senna from Antti Kalhola

After watching the film done by Top Gear plus the recent movie on him, he changed the perspective of Formula 1 completely..
Mika Hakkinen has always been my favorite F1 driver but after watching those films Senna is now my number 1..

i always use this 2 quotes from gone heroes in motorsports:

1) being a racing driver means you are racing with other people. And if you no longer go for a gap that exists, you're no longer a racing driver


2) If in doubt, flat out

Senna used to be my idol when I was in primary school. Up till the Imola tragedy. What a great loss.
He still hold the record for most pole position per race. Not to mentioned his prowess in the rain.
R.I.P to the great Senna.

IMHO he also still holds the record for most pole positions in the purest sense of all out speed. Because when MS broke that record, MS was already under the regulation of starting the race with the fuel you have for qualifying so MS poles at that time were not on pure pace anymore but more to strategic decisions.
