The Focus of Ayrton by Lyle462 The Focus of Ayrton by Lyle462
I used a photo ref for this one but could not find a copyright from the photographer. I kept googling but I'm hoping this is public domain since it was so prevalent in the search engines.

Anyway...this isn't drawn with ill motives. Ayrton Senna was and still is my favorite F-1 driver of all time. I sure miss seeing his skill at the wheel, especially in the rain.

He sure was! He was and still is my favorite F-1 driver. Not only a great driver but had a heart for people too.

You know, the day I started watching F1 just happened to be the same day Senna crashed.... Talk about timing.

Anyway, beautiful tribute to one of the best F1 drivers of all time!

Thankfully there's plenty of taped footage out there where you can see just what a talent he was. Thanks for the kind words about the drawing.:)

I can't wait to see the movie! I followed his career as much as I could. I even had his Senna logo on my head sets when I flew as a boom operator. No one knew what it meant but I informed them pretty quickly!HA
