Here is the plot description for “Senna”:

Ayrton Senna’s remarkable story – charting his physical and spiritual achievements on the track and off, his quest for perfection and the mythical status he has attained – is the subject of “Senna”: a documentary that spans the racing legend’s years as a Formula One driver from his opening season in 1984 to his untimely death a decade later.

Far more than a film for F1 fans, “Senna” unfolds a remarkable story in a remarkable manner. The film eschews many standard documentary techniques in favor of a more cinematic approach that makes full use of astounding footage much of which is drawn from F1 archives and previously unseen.

The movie trailer for “Senna” can be watched now below.

I don’t care for formula one racing — stock cars are more exciting.

Formula One Racing

I like it because it’s the challenge of technology vs. the envelope, man against against the limits of physics.
