Ayrton Senna.............

Hi all,
T'day ,i know, for all the formula one fans out there , its our MAY DAY.-11 years from now,but still.........Ayrton Senna,the ultimate racer met his death at the SAN MARINO GRAND PRIX,imola,italy........he was leading the race when the catastrophie happened......Gerhard Berger said "There was something supernatural 'bout him.An aura,as if he came from another planet and therefore had more insight,more brain cells,more power,more energy."and Berger agrres that "Being slower because of an inferior car didn't occur to him.There was just Senna,the rest belonged behind him".........The competition during those days were so intense,...certainly the drivers had to cop up a great effort to bring the car under control.I've'n't seen him racing live,indeed the only footage i saw of him was his car crashing into the walls of tamburello.Still,he's like a superharo,like a Batman or Superman...just someone 'bove.
30'th April,saturday Afternoon...:
The qualifying was 'bout to begin.The less powerful cars were already on the track.Senna and the other drivers were having their look on the pit monitors,but then,suddenly,the "simtek" of 'ROLAND RATZENBERGER' wildly spins and hit the wall at 308 KPH,an immediate death....senna was moved than anyone.he even cried at the shoulders of professor Watkin's.another DEATH after 8 years,..............its IMOLA.............

MAY 1,sunday.......the race.......:
with Roland's fears,the cars lined up with no safety car,and when the race started J.JLehto's car stalls,and immediate tension builds up in every one,coz the cars are streking in high stakes,and then one Pedro Lamy spots the danger and sideswipes the benetton.Safetycar's out,an opel vectra driven by the best of italians in the lower formulas-MAX ANGELELLI,the imola track is unique coz its the only ANTI-CLOCKWISE-track in the whole calender,comprising up-hills and down-hills,the track was indeed unique.U know,the drivers in the safety car should be proffessionals in a sense that they've to drive infront of the leader in an ordinary car to F1,and they should keep the car in ctrl.....the car wasn't going as the drivers expected,even senna came too close to the safety car and he has been complaining constantly to the pits,coz when the F1 car is low in speed,its tyre temperature would rise resulting in a much decrease in pressure thereby causing the ride height of the car to be decreased....and a low ride height means ur car's more unsteerable.MAX also knew it,but he can't do anything,he can't slip either...5 laps of safety parade...the sixth lap,the race's resumed and tyre pressure was increasing but the car was too low,senna was flat out for a moment,but then ,at the awesome Tamburello,the WILLIAMS takes the deviation and slams the cocrete walls...the crowds,the tifosis,millions 'round the globe....all silent......RED FLAG 's out,race's stopped,the helicopter lands at the tamburello,Martials,Security men,Doctors...'veryone arrives for the desperate help.....Helicopter takesoff and dissappears into the trees...indeed it was taking the SOUL OF FORMULA ONE away............race 's restarted after,and in his second pitstop,BERGER gets out of his ferrari [he was in lead then] and arranges the chopper to BOLOGNA HOSPITAL.But he knew,AYRTON was dying..........the race was won by the mighty MICHEAL SCHUMACHER,with MIKA finishing third and its the day he made that sentence,the sentence he would never forget,the sentence he wished he hadn't told it "THE RACE WAS GOOD FUN.."At 7:35 pm,it conforms to the world that at 18:40,all cardiac activities stopped,the death is confirmed.its said senna would've been virually unharmed if a part of the suspention hadn't been launched through his visor into his helmet and head."IT WAS A QUESTION OF CENTIMETERS..."

Millions in BRAZIL paid their last respects,His funeral was broadcasted live on television all over the world......
MONACO ,15'th may :
First place is left empty in honour of SENNA.Barrichello and Fittipaldi,the brazilians unrolled the flag,"a brazilian flag with a picture os senna in the yellow diamond,his insperable blue cap on his head,behind him the shape of the circuit at imola,like a crumpled nimbus.In the green,two words: ADEUS Ayrton..................................."
