Ayrton Senna was bornon 21 March 1960 in São Paulo, Brazilian. Three-times Formula One champion, Ayrton Senna was one of the world’s greatest racers of all time. Starting off at the tender age of thirteen, he rose to prominence in no time and became the undisputed champion of Formula One racing. However, the steep climb towards success did not last long as a tragic accident cost him his life. It was during the race at the San Marino Grand Prix that Senna lost his life in what is said to be one of the most fatal Formula One accidents. His death raised many questions over the safety concerns and reforms in Formula One. A legend in the making, Senna at the time of his death had successfully achieved a total of 65 pole positions. He was immensely dedicated to his profession and took part in some of the most controversial races with France's Alain Prost and England's Nigel Mansel. Amazingly, it took a total of 12 years for the acclaimed racer Michael Schumacher to beat Senna’s record.
