"Correr, competir, eu levo isso
no sangue, é parte de minha vida"
"Dear Ayrton, thank you so much for the
good times we have had together. Your memory
will always remain, not only with us who had the
pleasure of knowing you personally, but with all
the world who followed your career. We hope that
you family will find the strength to survive this
dreadful pain. Rest in peace."
"Senna is the king. I don't think
I ever will be. It's not a challenge I'm aiming
for, you can't compare the two of us. You never
know what he would have done in the future."
"I was proud to compete aginst him. Professionally,
he was the only driver I respected. In
Senna's honour, I will never sit in a Formula
One car again."

knew how sensitive, undemanding and polite he was
towards other people. In Brazil, He was very worried
about the situation of the street children. He founded
