Brazil: 14 years without Ayrton Senna

Thales Barreto [pt] reminds readers that 14 years ago today Ayrton Senna, a Brazilian racing driver and triple Formula One world champion, was dying in a fatal accident in at Imola. “Character, dedication, solidarity, energy, pride.

I wish the new generations will never forget the myth. Brazil is poor and petty.”
