WATCH: Top 10 moments of Ayrton Senna brilliance


It's now more than a quarter of a century since the magnificent Ayrton Senna was tragically killed at Imola, but his legend lives on in every fan who watched him race, and plenty who are too young even to have done that.

But as we remember the intense, driven, supremely talented Brazilian master on this, the anniversary of his death, the best way to do so must surely be to look back at his extraordinary achievements behind the wheel of a Formula 1 racing car.

So today, take a few minutes to watch the video above and remember just how gifted he was, and what a competitive spirit he had once he was in the cockpit, visor down, eyes focussed on the track ahead.

Most of us, of course, never knew Senna. But contributor and F1 Hall of Fame journalist David Tremayne did, and was at Imola on that fateful weekend in 1994. Click here to read his deeply personal account of one of the most tragic race meetings in the sport’s history.
