The throaty roar of an inline-four, the swish of a chequered flag, the camaraderie of riding together, and the legends and their greatest hits.

Every year, on this day, I celebrate your life. I mourn your death. I seek strength from your determination and inspiration from your dreams.

I gather close my sisters, my Senna sisters and think of you. I put you on the pedestal, as every hero should be.

You have brought us together. You have given us strength. You have taught us to fight… to fight for our dreams, no matter what the cost. To never give up. To stay true to our path.

And to fight to the win, even when the odds are stacked against us.

Every year, on this day, I mourn your passing. Yes I do. But I also remember and celebrate your life, your strength, your courage and your faith.

You are the hero, the dreamer, the perfectionist: Talented, brilliant, flawless, yet flawed.

You are in us.

And we are in you.

Remembering you always. Ayrton Senna.

Never forgotten.

Saudade.
