Senna (film) - streaming from Netflix

This fast-paced documentary profiles Ayrton Senna, one of the greatest drivers in the history of Formula One racing, 3-times world champion, and a hero in his native Brazil. Using only archival footage, it examines the idealistic Senna's inspiring legend. Charismatic, compassionate and a dedicated risk-taker, Senna was known for his integrity in a sport often fraught with cutthroat politics, and also for the deep religious faith that gave him purpose.

The film is very moving, especially the end when his sister mentioned that he read a passage of the Bible on the day of his death that mentioned he would be offered a great gift. Senna's foundation has donated more than 20 millions to poor children in Brazil. His once bitter rival, Alain Prost, 4-time world champion, is a trustee of the foundation.
