GOAT – Ayrton Senna
Ayrton Senna was a Brazilian racing driver who won the Formula One World Drivers’ Championship in 1988, 1990 and 1991 and won 41 Grands Prix and had a total of 65 pole positions.
Senna began his motorsport career in karting and progressed through different types of racing and made his Formula One debut with Toleman-Hart in 1984 before moving to Lotus-Renault the following year and winning six Grands Prix over the next three seasons.
In 1988, McLaren-Honda won 15 of the 16 races, Senna beat his teammate Alain Prost eight wins to seven to take his first driving title – and thereafter two of the greatest drivers became the central characters in one of the most infamous feuds.
Later, Alain Prost was one of the many drivers escorting Senna’s coffin through Sao Paulo.
Senna died in an accident while leading the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix driving for the Williams team.
