Thoughts

"Racing, competing, its in my blood, its part of me, its part of my life, I've been doing it during all my life and it stands up before anything else..."

" The race, the competition, it is in my blood, it is a part of me, it is a part of my life, I made it all my life and it comes before all something else...


Ayrton Senna Da Silva






Homage to Ayrton:


Ayrton Senna is without possible dispute the best pilot of all times. He/it marked the world of the Formula 1 forever, as well by his/her/its attitude that by his/her/its prowesses. Because, in addition to be a genius of the piloting, this appreciable and intelligent man liked to think on him and on them others. His/her/its (too rare) interviews put in evidence a man gnawed by the passion of the automotive sport, meticulous to him extreme and perfectly conscious of his/her/its irretrievable choices; one alone hello: the flight forward!

Fascinated and violent, such was Ayrton: a rage to defeat inexhaustible, a need almost vital to win to prove to them others as well as to him even that he/it was the better; but a pilot so fascinating! This brilliant and mystical pilot must be an example for all: " Magic Senna " said the very true things, that go beyond even of the small world of the automotive sport. One can even say that his/her/its philosophy is a hymn to the overtaking of one, until him extreme limits. It is necessary to know tutoyer limits it, to deride it, to master it... for the simple pleasure to make it.

If I like Ayrton, it is for several reasons. Certainly, it is very evidently his/her/its immense talent, to the limit of the occult, that forces my admiration. But, in fact, what fascinates me the more at home that is, I believe, his/her/its lucidity facing the world and especially his/her/its philosophy: we even have the. I am meticulous, an eternal unsatisfied; I always want more, still better! It is sickly! To such point that I perfectly find again in words of Ayrton; they appear me so familiar... I would have wanted to be pilot of Formula 1: it will remain, I think, my bigger regret...

Also, to give back homage to Ayrton, what of better than to recall some of his/her/its more beautiful sentences?

" Very young, I had a first contact with the mechanical things. In the occurrence, a go-cart. Very quickly, this go-cart became a part of myself. That that, to the departure, was only a passion, became gradually, a necessity. To live ".
