I remember the incident well. Having watched Ayrton evolve, I never thought he was as sensational as he was hyped to be. Very good and naturally talented, no doubt. Had some outstanding drives, but hadn't developed the consistency or discipline of a Prost or Schumacher.

A great loss to racing, though.

Senna is the best thing i've seen lately on Netflix. Awesome film.

Also check out the Eric Bana flick.

I can't wait for Rush by Ron Howard. The story of the battle between Hunt and Lauda.

Gallery of the cars and stars that appear in the movie. Apparently, lots of original cars being used.

I thought it was very good. Learned thing about Jackie Stewart I did not know.
Those early drivers were fearless.

More interesting racing venues and real cars which were "driven". Todays stuff is too homogenized, and the "driver" is more of an operator. Sure, the technology is amazing, and there's a few really talented guys out there, but very few current superticket holders are really podium material.

Sir Jackie had tons of talent, but he's a butt. Me? I was (am) a huge Rene Arnoux fan.

Tracks? Yawn. Fake street circuits with walls everywhere. Real computer designed purpose built venues, glass smooth, perfect for the current slot cars, but is this really racing??

Bill you might try to find a series called Legends of Motorsport. Great vintage footage. Have one episode saved on a DVD from dvr. Series stopped being aired and have never found it available since.
