Whilst I'm here...

I think the Senna movie/documentary is out on DVD now. I saw it at the Cinema and for any racing fan it is a must-see. Especially if you already have a rental plan.

Why the hell was that guy who caused the whole thing racing that hard that early in the race. You don't win races by brute force. You win races by endurance. Unfortunately it seems inexperience has claimed another life on the track.

Its sad to see someone go out so brutality in television, but at least he was doing something he loved.
