Ayrton Senna

And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

Suddenly I realized that I was no longer driving the car consciously. I was driving it by a kind of instinct, only I was in a different dimension.

The danger sensation is exciting. The challenge is to find new dangers.

I have no idols. I admire work, dedication and competence.

If you have God on your side, everything becomes clear.


My biggest error? Something that is to happen yet.

Racing, competing, it's in my blood. It's part of me, it's part of my life; I have been doing it all my life and it stands out above everything else.

These things bring you to reality as to how fragile you are; at the same moment you are doing something that nobody else is able to do. The same moment that you are seen as the best, the fastest and somebody that cannot be touched, you are enormously fragile.

Wealthy men can't live in an island that is encircled by poverty. We all breathe the same air. We must give a chance to everyone, at least a basic chance.

You will never know the feeling of a driver when winning a race. The helmet hides feelings that cannot be understood.
