A week that no one can forget in the history of F1 racing
|   Sunday, May 12, 2013
19 years ago it was in this week that the ever dominant never giving up sportsman Ayrton Senna lost his life in the San Marino grand prix. He was a great person and a great competitor. In his era he was considered the best. There were very few people who were as competitive as him. He had the urge to win and he gave it his best shot every time.

He had a desire to win and was the best in wet conditions. He thrived in wet conditions. He won nearly 25 per cent of his races.
He started from pole position in almost more than 80 races. He was good at his skills and had a ten year long career until he died in the San Marino grand prix in 1994. In his career he won the championship three times in 1988 than in 1990 and again in 1991.

He had a carting career in Brazil and later he shifted to single seated racing in Britain. He had a lot of success in this format. He was then tested by the Toleman team in 1982. In the very next year in 1984 he was appointed as a driver of the Toleman team. He was a great racer and a great competitor.

This era saw one of the greatest rivalries between the two legends Senna and Prost. Then he was appointed by the Lotus team with a three year contract from 1985 to 1987. After that he finally reached the best of his career in 1988 when he was appointed by team McLaren. Now Senna and Prost were team mates. Even then their rivalries did not end. The season saw that the McLaren cars ended winning the races on 15 occasions out of the 16 races.

After Senna won the 1988 championship many people think that Prost had won the title in 1989 controversially when he was not better than Senna. Senna did not give up but he continued with his surge forward and ended up winning the next two seasons in 1990 and 1991. Senna had established himself at the biggest stage in racing and was enjoying every moment of his career. This was a great career.

In the 1994 season at the San Marino grand prix Senna was in leading position. He was winning the race at that moment. He was ahead of Michael Schumacher when his car went off the track and hit the wall on the sides. This was a black day in the history of sports entertainment as it saw one of the greatest careers coming to an end. Senna was dead. He was no longer a part of the racing world.

Even after his death people remember him as one of the greatest in the racing circuit. His achievements cannot be forgotten. Even to this day his foundation runs to serve the underprivileged children in his homeland. He was not just a good racer but a great person from the heart as well.
