During his lifetime, Brazilian Formula 1 champion Ayrton Senna was a leader in his sport, a pioneer in driving technique, a hard racer and a compassionate man.As well as his amazing on-track skills, he believed that impoverished children should be able to realise their potential. Following his fatal crash during the1994 San Marino Grand Prix, Senna's remarkable career and humanitarian outlook have continued to inspire the world.  The Ayrton Senna Institute has helped educate more than 7.8 million Brazilian children since 1984, and its impact continues to grow.
