Some say that F1 was at its peak during the 1990s, and the most iconic racing drivers of that era was Ayrton Senna. The Brazilian began his motorsport career in karting, and moving up to open-wheel racing and Formula 3, before making his debut in F1, with Toleman-Hart, in 1984.
The following year he moved to Lotus-Renault, and only to join Alain Prost at McLaren-Honda in 1988, which is also when Ayrton Senna won his first World Championship.
Before losing his life during a 1994 San Marino Grand Prix, at the Imola track, in Italy, Senna was voted as the best and most influential Formula One driver of all time in the different motorsport polls, and besides his memory, his legacy lives on through one iconic vehicle: the Honda NSX.
Senna helped the Japanese come up with the impressive sports vehicle and convinced them to update the chassis and suspension, after he drove it hard on several tracks, including the Nurburgring Nordschleife, which is why this filmmaker, and located in the Netherlands, has chosen the Honda NSX in order to pay tribute to Senna.
No narration was needed for this 3-minute and 23-second long footage, as a background audio from several clips that show the late racing driver, along with a delicious growl provided by a V6 lump, are more than enough to make you want to click play for the second time.
