DVD review: Senna
External imageFormula One motor-racing is probably one of the most Marmite sports of all time; people either love it or hate it. But even if you’re of the opinion that despite the speeds the cars reach, there’s nothing exciting about watching a bunch of vehicles drive round and round and round for a couple of hours, the story of Brazilian driver Ayrton Senna might win you over.
This documentary picks up Senna’s story as he made the transition from go-karting to Formula One in 1984. He quickly moved up the grid, proving himself to be a natural talent behind a wheel.
It then focuses on his relationship with fellow driver Alain Prost; the pair developed a remarkable competitive spirit between one another, one that would cause controversy both on and off the racing circuit..
