Senna attended Colegio Rio Branco and graduated in 1977 having a grade 5 in physics as well as other grades in Math, Chemistry and English. He then enrolled in a faculty that specialized in Business Administration but he dropped out after three months. In the age of four, his father bought him a go kart and by age eight, Ayrton Senna was often competing in karting events. He’s faced competitions who were years older than him. Four was shortly managed by Lucio Pascal Gascon and won the South American Kart Championship in 1977. Four competed in the Karting World Championship from 1978 to 1982 where he finished runner-up in 1979 and 1980. He was the teammate of Terry Fullerton in 1978 whom he felt was the competition he got the most satisfaction from in racing.

His career advanced quickly. In 1982, Senna moved to England to pursue his professional racing career. It was in 1984 that he got the attention of the racing world in Formula One. In the next ten years, he’d win the World Championship three times — 1988, 1990 and 1991. He’s also engaged in certain contentious racing with Alain Prost of France and Nigel Mansell of England. Senna raced for the teams of Toleman (1984), Lotus (1985-1987), McLaren (1988-1993) and Williams (1994). His Formula One teammates were Johnny Cecotto, Stefan Johansson, Elio De Angelis, Johnny Dumfries, Satoru Nakajima, Prost, Gerhard Berger, Michael Andretti, Mika Hkkinen and Damon Hill.

Ayrton Senna expired on May 1, 1994 in a race at the San Marino Grand Prix when his automobile which was beset with difficulties the whole season inexplicably left the track and crashed into the concrete barrier. His departure was the last that happened in Formula One due to significant safety reforms visited after that awful weekend at Imola. He’s 65 Pole Positions, one position short of twice as many as Prost and also the other second placer holder Jim Clark has 33 each. It took 12 years for Michael Schumacher to beat his record with 66 Pole Places that paradoxically took place at the San Marino Grand Prix in 2006. Michael was voted as the best driver of them all in a 2010 survey by his fellow Formula One drivers.

Ayrton Senna had an estimated net worth of $400 million which he gathered through his racing ability. He’s sold accessories that include T shirts, replica cars, Montegrappa pens, TAG Heuer wrist watches, Cavaro bikes, and Bell Helmets and Ducati bikes. Ayrton had a bright and yellowish helmet that resembled the Brazilian Flag. The first one sold anywhere between $40,000 to $50,00. A sizable portion of his personal fortune was contributed to build the Instituto Ayrton Senna in Brazil. Ayrton owned a $25 million private plane plus a Raytheon Hawker 800 which had the tail number: N125AS. The “AS” stood for Ayrton Senna.

2I have no idols. I admire work, dedication and competence.
3I'm very privileged. I've always had a very good life. But everything that I've gotten out of life was obtained through dedication and a tremendous desire to achieve my goals. I had a great desire for victory, meaning victory in life, not as a driver. To all of you who have experienced this or are searching now, let me say that whoever you may be in your life, whether you're at the highest or the most modest level, you must show great strength and determination, and do everything with love and with a deep belief in God. One day you'll achieve your aim and you'll be successful.
4If I have achieved what I have, and managed to do everything I did, it is largely due to having had the chance to grow up well in a family environment, living decently with no economic problems, and being guided towards the right road at decisive points in my life.

12Had his look-alike puppet in the French show Les guignols de l'info (1988).
13He always had a Brazilian flag hidden in his car in the case he won the race. At the time of his death he had an Austrian flag in his car to commemorate a fellow race car driver Roland Ratzenberger of Austria, who was killed on the same track the day before in a car crash as well.
14First win race in Formula One: Portugal (1985)
15Many experts were convinced that the cause must have been mechanical failure: Senna could not have lost control of his vehicle for any other reason. An inquiry concluded that the accident was caused by a snapped steering column. As a result, manslaughter charges were brought against six members of Senna's Williams racing team. However, all of them were eventually acquitted, and in 1997 the prosecutor's appeal was rejected.
16Died in a Bologna hospital from severe head injuries resulting from a crash on Imola's famous Tamburello bend.
17Although in Formula One Grand Prix wins he was behind his chief rival Alain Prost, at the time of his death he had achieved 65 Pole Positions, one short of twice as many as Prost and the other second place holder, Jim Clark, who had 33 each.
