In 1984 a young Brazilian named Ayrton Senna arrived on the scene in Formula 1. At the Monaco Grand Prix, driving an underpowered car, he astonished the racing world by finishing 2nd . Had the race not been stopped due to a downpour of rain, he would almost certainly have won. The following year, the man with the yellow helmet put his car on the pole no less than seven times and was winning races, something that convinced the skeptics he was seriously quick. Senna was not only on his way to becoming the fastest man on four wheels, but also was developing a reputation for being intense, highly intelligent, and mystical.
With a selection of 105 of his finest photographs, Paul-Henri Cahier’s Ayrton Senna – Through My Eye follows the magical driver from Sao Paulo over his 10 blistering fast years on the circuits of the world, until his untimely, tragic death at Imola in 1994 . Also included in the book are 18 pages of text in which Paul-Henri explains how he came to be a fulltime Formula 1 photographer and, in his opinion, what made Senna so devastatingly quick. While the photographs stand alone, 9 pages of captions and thumbnail images give the reader a reference for where they were taken and what the mood and circumstances were at the time.
