I don’t know how to drive otherwise than risky. When I have to overtake someone, i will do it. Every pilot has his limits. Mine is a little bit above the others.
- Ayrton Senna
His entry into Formula 1 happened in 1984 by Toleman, after attracting the attention of multiple teams. In his third GP, held in South Africa, Senna scored his first point. Two weeks later, the result was repeated at the Belgian Grand Prix. Adversity met him at the San Marco Grand Prix when he did not get the time - that was the only time this happened in his career, after all, losing was not in his plans. It was that same year, during the Monaco Grand Prix, that Ayrton, after qualifying 13th on the grid, made impressive progress through the streets of Monte Carlo quickly reaching third place. During the 19th track, he managed to overtake Niki Lauda, who was in second, and with that, began to threaten the leader Alain Prost, even with a much more limited machine in his hands. At that point, it rained too much on the track and the race had to be paused for safety reasons. Senna had passed Prost, but the victory was not computed, since in those cases, was considered the position of the previous lap. Still, his moment was not erased: he had impressed everyone. In the same year, Senna won two more podiums.
