Ayrton Senna\'s crash

Any of you who followed Senna's career like I did will want to be sure and cut away from the Superbowl pregame BS and go to The Learning Channel at 4PM Eastern Sunday afternoon. There will be a very well documented reconstruction and engineering analysis of Senna's fatal crash in the Tamburello curve at Imola. The segment is about 20 minutes long, and I caught the tail end of it while channel surfing earlier this week.

If Ayrton were still around, Michael Schumacher wouldn't be a 5-time F1 World Champion - it would be Senna.

Re: Ayrton Senna\'s crash

I'll never forget that day. I woke up Sunday morning and clicked on the TV to catch the start of the race. I watched in shock and utter disbelief at the crash and extraction process. Despite what they say, I think he was dead there and then.

I attended the San Marino race in 1998 and spent a few quiet minutes by the newly erected statue of him near that corner.
