Senna began his motorsport career in karting, moved up to open-wheel racing in

1981, and won the 1983 British Formula Three Championship. In 1988, he joined

Frenchman Alain Prost at McLaren-Honda. Between them, they won all but one

of the 16 Grands Prix that year, and Senna claimed his first World Championship.

Prost claimed the championship in 1989, and Senna his second and third

championships in 1990 and 1991. In 1992, the Williams-Renault combination began

to dominate Formula One. Senna nonetheless managed to finish the 1993 season

as runner-up, winning five races and negotiating a move to Williams in 1994.

Senna has often been voted as the best and most influential Formula One driver

of all time in various motorsport polls. He was also acclaimed for his wet weather

performances, such as the 1984 Monaco Grand Prix, the 1985 Portuguese

Grand Prix, and the 1993 European Grand Prix. He holds a record six victories

at the Monaco Grand Prix, and is the fifth-most successful driver of all time in

terms of race wins. Senna courted controversy throughout his career, particularly

during his turbulent rivalry with Prost. This is his incredible story.
