During his lifetime, Brazilian Formula 1 racing champion Ayrton Senna was widely recognised as a leader in his sport, a pioneer in driving technique, a hard racer and a compassionate man. Above all, he believed that impoverished children should be able to realise their potential. Following his fatal crash during the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix, Senna's remarkable career and humanitarian outlook have continued to inspire the world.
Now, for the first time, the Senna family has opened its archives, sharing never-before-seen photographs of private moments at home and at the racetrack. Additionally, an assortment of treasured ephemera from Senna's life is included in 13 beautiful envelopes. Readers can pull out and examine realistic replicas of his baptism certificate, handwritten letters and race agendas, a keepsake formal photo, autographed team stickers, and more than 20 other special items.
The book's striking imagery forms a focal point around which bold design and compelling narrative intertwine. In exclusive new interviews, Senna's family and team-mates share personal anecdotes and favourite memories.
The book and the slip case are both in excellent condition throughout.
