Well said

Two years in a row - at the same track, on the same turn.

Even if people learned about him from the documentary, have any other F1 champs had a documentary made about them? I think that in itself is a testament to the guy's cred.

Not only that, but the documentary itself had many F1 drivers name Senna as the best. I think they are probably better qualified than the rest of us.

I think he still holds the record for wins at Monaco (6 wins).

If you look at Mclaren's website, they just posted a dedication to him.

I don't think anyone else is still getting that much respect, that long after their death.

The amount of pole positions in Senna's career is quite impressive

Valentino Rossi... I've been super into moto GP and he has been dominant for longer than any F1 driver, although Senna wAs probably better at his sport he only did it for a couple years
