Millions of people around the world watched in horror on that fateful day in Imola at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix when Ayrton Senna's car careered off the track at 190mph. The greatest driver in Formula One history was dead. In this classic sports book, reissued to tie-in with a new Working Title documentary film about Senna, Richard Williams explores the complex Brazilian who was a hero in his own country and an icon to everyone who loved not just motor-racing but sport itself. In his drive to win and his desire always to test himself to the limit, Senna embodied all that is best and most thrilling in sport.

Williams comes very, very close' Mail on Sunday 'Not just an insightful and pragmatic assessment of Senna as driver and complex human being, but a thorough examination of that grim weekend for F1' Financial Times 'A masterly portrait--literate, poignant and truth-seeking' Scotland on Sunday
