Thank you. That was excellent. As a telling of who Senna was, and of his relationship with Prost, it's roughly 100 times better than the movie Senna, which is rotten at its core.

The movie Senna has tons of rare F1 video and audio. From that point of view, it's outstanding. But it debases itself by dishonestly vilifying and demonizing Prost in order to make Senna a bigger hero than he was. Senna had faults, like any man. The linked documentary hints at those faults. The movie Senna goes out of its way to reject them and to paint a false portrait of the man.

Senna deserved better than his namesake movie.
