With the Olympic Games taking place in Rio de Janeiro this year, Brazilian athletes have been given an inspiring message by one of the countries biggest sporting heroes.

‘Instituto Ayrton Senna‘, together with JWT and Le Cube, have created this beautiful animation to inspire the home nation at the games by telling the story of Senna’s incredible triumph at the 1991 Brazilian Grand Prix, one of the most famous victories in his incredible career.

Senna had come close to winning in Brazil many, many times but in 1991 he finally achieved his dream despite a gearbox problem and rain falling in the closing laps.
