The focus of this chapter is Brazil’s Formula One race car driver and champion Ayrton Senna. Senna’s untimely death in his sport in 1994 resulted in three days of national mourning and in many respects helps cement his global reputation as an icon in his sport. This chapter examines several aspects of Senna’s career, including rivalries and feuds with other drivers and teams, and his varied and often storied personal relationships.
