Ayrton Senna was more than a great racing driver: he was a giant of a man who, 17 years after his death, is still mourned as no sportsman has ever been. Much has been written about him, but this book approaches the subject with a powerfully different focus. More than 120 people who knew him, worked with him and competed against him were asked a single question: what is your strongest memory of Senna? The result, told entirely in direct quotes, stands as an intimate, heartfelt portrait of the man, from his early days as a karter to his death at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. Hardback, 216 x 135mm, 208 pages, 27 colour & 4 b&w illustrations
