In his sport, the marks left are countless. In 1990, the Interlagos racetrack underwent a radical change in its layout and a sloped curve was proposed to connect the pit straight to the curve of the sun. Ayrton did not miss the opportunity and proposed that an "S" make the connection, in a clear allusion to the surname so beloved by the Brazilians. His death brought new safety standards for F1 that had long been needed: new barriers, redesigned curves to minimize the possibility of accidents, high safety measures and the cockpit of the riders rethought. In December 2009, the English publication Autosport conducted a survey of more than 200 motoring athletes to elect the best Formula 1 driver of all time. The result could not be different: Ayrton Senna took the title. The British state communications network, BBC, went further and elected him the best Formula 1 driver in History. In addition to public recognition, Senna became a true inspiration to those who began their career in any sport. Focused on his ultimate goals, Ayrton did not let any trouble of course put his dreams in the pit stop. For him, success was the only option and with high levels of dedication, achieved.
