Finally got a chance to watch the film last night.

Brilliant viewing, well made and really interesting.

What a legend he was. A daring driver and such a tragedy that he passed away at the age of 34.

A lot of questions still remain unanswered about the cause of the crash.

The same production team are making a docudrama about Seve Ballesteros. Should be riveting viewing as well.

True, it just seemed a little strange the mention of a film in this section. Anyway, I concur, it's a fantastic sporting documentary with a very emotional feel to it.

How it didn't make The Oscars is a travesty but then they have a history of choosing duds as winners anyway.

I watched it last night too. What a sportsman even with all the risks and injury's he carried on going . He seemed like a great man to and will probably be remembered in Brazil for decades to come.

Yep Stephen Evans was in dubai during the test series to raise cash for the film. Will concentrate on his early days. Promises to be a real tear jerker but also inspirational.

Family was so poor he first started to play with pebbles and homemade clubs.

I have heard a lot of good things about it, both from F1 and non-F1 fans so I will try to watch it soon

The director if I am not mistaken is an Indian?

He had so much passion for the sport.

I always feel that the greatest sportsmen are the ones who just enjoy the sport and would do it for free.

Loved the film and the way the whole movie is on actual footage from race events and senna's family videos. Explains the politics which went on in F1 at the time, it was much out in open then it is now.
