We like our sportsmen to be passionate, and my inclination is to see things like this as part of the packages with Senna - you cant take away the passion when it suits you.
Agreed, Top Gear didn't fully explain the circumstances of the 1990 crash but overall they painted him in a very good light.

The Irvine incident; in my view, Irvine deserved what he got, as he was a cocky little sh1t on his first F1 race with Jordan. By all accounts the punch happened during an argument after the race and Senna punched him in the heat of the moment, and it was not premeditated. It does not lessen my view of Senna in any way, but it was not exactly sporting behaviour and does show the fiery Latin side of Senna, perhaps the incident could have been handled better by complaining to Mr Balastre as Prost would have done. On second thoughts, maybe that woudn't have worked!!

I am surprised to hear you say that pspassos, I always thought he had a legendary status in Brazil, but you are far better placed than I am to comment on this. I guess 17 years on a younger generation don't remember his achievements.

You are right. The film did a great job of making clear that prost was the politician and Senna much more impetuous. But I think it is exactly that character trait that made us all admire him so much, and justified this movie.

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you rotect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.
