Each of the events are well written and exceprts of interviews from all the sides are included. Very unbiased !
It took me a few days to read, I enjoyed and my heart leaped with excietement remebering each season, each headline, etc.
A fantastic recollection of the Incident in Suzuka, and of "the lap" at Donnington.
But as soon as I arrived to Saturday Apr 30th 1994 my eyes were filled with tears and had to put the book back.
I was and am a true Ayrton Senna fan so the book was almost mandatory for me to own, it gave me good insight into what he was like and what modivated him through his short but very successful life.
I recommend this book to anyone who truly is an F1 and Ayrton Senna da Silva fan and has some questions about his career as a driver.
But I don't think Hilton ever makes any kind of case for his book being objective or comprehensive, just that he wanted to tell the story of Ayrton Senna as he knew it. And in this regard, he does a great job. Reading about how quickly Senna could learn to drive and understand other types of racing cars and the small personal habits he kept as he developed into a world champion was tremendous fun. I've just read the book for the second time and enjoyed it just as much as the first time.
Truly explains how unique Senna was mainly as a driver and in all that he does. Without a doubt, he was the greatest.
