Today is the 20th anniversary of Ayrton Senna's death at the Imola circuit.

Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of Roland Ratzenberger's death in qualifying for the same event.

The Guardian commemorates both: Ayrton and Roland.

If you like motorsport, sport in general or even just documentaries, you should definitely take the time to watch Senna. It's available on Netflix, Amazon Prime and other on demand services.
