Starting this Sunday, April 6th, TV Globo will air an exclusive documentary about Ayrton Senna during the show Esporte Espetacular. It will be divided in four episodes, which promise to be a “big gift to all the fans who love the Brazilian driver to this day”, as described by host Glenda Kozlowski on TV Globo’s promo for the documentary.
The network’s news team delved deep into the driver’s history, delivering a great film, which includes special moments of Senna’s career, like the duels with Alain Prost, Nigel Mansell and Nelson Piquet, the races in the rain and the pact with the Brazilian national soccer team when the squad became a four-time world champion, in 1994.
“It was like seeing Pelé playing”, says the national team’s coach at the time, Carlos Alberto Parreira, documentary’s interviewees. The film also features other TV personalities, like William Bonner, Luciano Huck and Pedro Bial, to name a few.
Drivers were also interviewed, as well as people who were close to the driver as he reached his F-1 peak. “He wanted to teach me through experience”, says Bruno Senna, Ayrton’s nephew. “He always was and always will be Ayrton Senna from Brazil”, says Galvão Bueno on the promo for de documentary broadcasted by TV Globo.
