Senna & the Art of F1 Storytelling – The James Allen on F1 Podcast


This month the F1 world is celebrating Ayrton Senna, the three-time world champion who died 30 years ago. For many lovers of the sport, he remains the greatest driver of all time. His story and passionate, intense character are captured in the 2010 documentary Senna, a movie that crossed F1 over to mainstream entertainment audiences. This wasn’t a film about cars and race results. It was about a human being. Without the Senna movie would Drive to Survive have been the crossover hit it has been? And would F1 have the fanbase it has today? In our main feature interview, the writer & producer of Senna, Manish Pandey gives us his take. Senna’s niece Bianca gives the family’s point of view and reveals how over 36 million children in Brazil have been given educational support by the Ayrton Senna Institute. Joining James to discuss all things Senna are Autosport Editor-in-Chief Rebecca Clancy and Brazilian journalist Julianne Cerasoli. They also touch on the bombshell story that Adrian Newey, the designer of the last F1 car Senna raced, is to leave Red Bull at the end of the season. Source
