Ayrton Senna: The Hard Edge of Genius

Ayrton Senna: The Hard Edge of Genius

by Christopher Hilton (Author)


From his World Championship victory in 1988 to his controversial disputes the following year and finally to his recapture of the title in 1990, Ayrton Senna has regularly made the headlines. Yet many regard him as a shy and introverted personality. This biography offers a portrait of the man who has been described as the most talented motor-racing driver since Jim Clark. Senna is seen through his own eyes and those of the people who have been close to him. Here is the child from Sao Paolo who taught himself to drive in a farm jeep; the youth who astonished spectators at the Le Mans World Kart Racing Championship and who stormed his way through the Formula Ford 1600 scene to earn a place in Formula One; and the Senna whom few people really know - his philosophy, his religious beliefs, his feelings about his achievements and setbacks, and his explanation of the idea that drives him on to further goals. The author also wrote Nigel Mansell and Conquest of Formula One .
