Senna was just unbelievably fast

Monaco 1988 - Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost drive their McLarens past the finish line

The thing about Senna was that he was just unbelievably fast. Really, inhumanely fast. His car control was incredible. In terms of being able to control a car, control exactly where it went, drive absolutely at the limit of what was possible; he was the best at that. There are many ways to measure a racing driver, and you can’t really say one was just, simply the best because there are so man variables involved and it depends on the day and the track and the situation. That said, Senna is notable for his prodigious ability to actually drive a car at speed. I’ve heard before that if the fate of the world depended on a car race, and you had anybody through all of human history to choose from to drive for us; Senna would be perhaps the wisest choice.
