…that if Ayrton Senna were still alive today, he’d be celebrating his 51st birthday.Were he still alive, Ayrton Senna would be turning 51 today

Senna was a icon and a hero to me when I started following Formula 1 over twenty years ago, and like many fans, I felt his sudden passing in 1994 with enormous sadness.

While not everyone may have agreed with his unfaltering will to win, there is no denying his talent nor the mark he left on the sport during, and after, his life.

What are your memories of Ayrton Senna? Post them in the comments field below…
