Who knew? Honestly, who really knew that Ayrton Senna would mean so much to so many people? Who honestly knew, back when this photo was taken in 1985, that this young man would go down as arguably the greatest racing driver of all time?
I have read contemporary reports, articles and interviews, and they all seem to indicate that anyone who was in contact with the Brazilian knew he was special. The raw talent and high levels of commitment were visible to all, but to become more revered than Fangio or Clark, who honestly knew?
