A Driving Force! “Just because I believe in God, just because I have faith in God, it doesn’t mean that I am immune. It doesn’t mean that I am immortal.” “Nothing can keep me away from the love of God”, ~Ayrton Senna, Brazilian racing driver and three-time Formula One world champion! (1960-1994)
In a sport where there “is no room for error, for an error would lead to an accident”, Ayrton Senna’s life story had everything that a Hollywood movie requires: Heart, Soul, Faith, Humility, Confidence, Speed, Action, Looks, the Evil Competitor, the Love Story, the Love of the Game, the Political and Monetary Influences, Philanthropy, and most importantly, the Tragedy!
From a young age, Ayrton knew where his interests lied, and would pay attention in school, so that he would have more time to spend go-karting instead of doing homework. Although his family had the means to support his hobby, Ayrton had to fight his way into Formula One by virtue of his talents. On October 30, 1988, while at the Japanese Grand Prix, he overcame all obstacles, when his car stalled in the starting line. Losing time, Ayrton demonstrated just how much of an unstoppable driving force he was when he went from 16th to 4th to FIRST PLACE. He particularly enjoyed wet conditions, was able to pull into the lead from being five laps behind, was able to handle any antics, Alain Prost, his French competitor dished out, could walk away from any minor accident, unscathed, and demonstrated the ability to stay humble even when the stakes were high and the rules enforced; always keeping his family, friends and love of God, First Place.
