SENNA, the documentary directed by Asif Kapadia and made in collaboration with the Senna family, airs tonight on the NBC Sports Network at 8 p.m. ET.
SENNA premiered to widespread critical acclaim in 2010. It follows the life and career of three-time Formula One World Champion Ayrton Senna, and highlights his passion not only for racing but for his home country of Brazil, where he was a national hero.
A mix of interviews with journalists and archived footage tells the story from Senna’s climb up to F1 all the way through the tragic ending of Imola 1994, the San Marino Grand Prix weekend.
The Monaco Grand Prix weekend is always a special remembrance of Senna’s career, as he won on the streets of Monte Carlo a record six times. His sixth and last win occurred 20 years ago in 1993.
