There's a good documentary about him called "Senna" (it's currently available on Netflix streaming). Also, the name is typo'd a couple times as "Aryton".

Why do we always have to be the super-mega insecure douches , super scared of acknowledging any success beyond our borders, like it would invalidate anything we are? Does celebrating Ayrton makes less of a legend of Earnhardt?
