PG-13 | | Documentary, Biography, Sport
A documentary on Brazilian Formula One racing driver Ayrton Senna, who won the F1 world championship three times before his death at age 34.
Upon being hired, the director Asif Kapadia knew little about the life of Ayrton Senna and Formula 1. This was the intention of the producers, so he had a fair look at the film material.
The best decision is my decision!
At the end, a title card referring to Senna's fatal accident reads "There has not been a fatality in Formula One since." This is now inaccurate following the death of Formula One driver Jules Bianchi following injuries sustained at the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix.
Also, two marshals have been killed during races in Italy and Australia. There is also the F1 test driver Maria de Villota, who died as a result of an accident during testing.
While the credits roll, we see home movies by the Senna family.
