Netflix Unveils Impressive First Look at Ayrton Senna Series Trailer

A six-part fictional series inspired by the storied career of a Formula 1 icon.

Netflix is set to release a fresh miniseries inspired by the story of Formula 1 legend Ayrton Senna. Titled “Senna,” this six-part series is scheduled to premiere later in the current year. Although Netflix has not disclosed a specific debut date yet, the show is expected to air sometime in 2024.

The sneak peek trailer provides glimpses into the life of the Formula 1 driver, showcasing his emotional triumph at the 1991 Brazilian Grand Prix. Despite having already secured two F1 world championships, Senna had never before achieved a victory at his home circuit. The teaser includes snapshots of his early years and illustrious career, all reflected in the visor of his famous yellow helmet, shedding light on the obstacles he encountered during that particular race. It concludes with his victorious outcries, famously captured live as he crossed the finish line. Even the most resolute fans might find themselves getting a little emotional over that moment.

Gabriel Leone plays the role of Senna in the show, alongside Matt Mella as Alain Prost and Pamela Tome as Senna’s girlfriend Xuxa. Netflix describes the series as a fictional portrayal of his life, focusing on both his racing experiences and personal life. The story starts during Senna’s early days in Formula Ford and continues until later in his career.

Indeed, the tragic incident occurred on May 1, 1994, nearly three decades before the debut of this trailer. At Imola, during the San Marino Grand Prix, his vehicle veered off the track at a high-speed turn, crashing into the barrier at speeds exceeding 100 mph. Despite being promptly rescued and airlifted to the hospital, his official time of passing was officially noted as the instant of impact during the race.

After his emotional victory at the Brazilian Grand Prix in 1991, Senna managed to secure his third world championship that same year. Being only 31 years old, he became the youngest driver to win the F1 title three times and to achieve consecutive championships (1990 and 1991). Sadly, Senna passed away at the age of 34.
