There's very little left to say about Ayrton Senna that hasn't already been said, aside from my own comments and observations.
Unless you saw Ayrton driving, it is difficult to fully describe his talent. He was simply able to do things with a racing car that were breathtaking. Some people say that F1 cars are so fast, you can't see much difference between drivers - this simply isn't true. and for those of us who were lucky enough to have regularly watched Ayrton in qualifying and racing, we will remember the experiences forever. Not only was he visibly faster than anyone else through the corners, every lap was inch perfect with the previous, as though you were watching an action reply. He was unbelievably precise and consistent. I'll never forget qualifying at Silverstone in 1991 standing at Bridge Corner, surrounded by Mansell fans, who to a man were simply shaking their heads and smiling in disbelief and admiration after Ayrton had come through on a fast lap.
To say that his loss was a tragedy is an understatement, and for many involved in the sport, and those on the periphery like myself, Formula 1 changed forever on 1st May 1994 at 14:17.
At some point in the future, I hope to produce a new print celebrating Ayrton's driving and achievements.
