In this first teaser video for Senna, the limited series premiering in late 2024, we see the recreation of Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna’s historic victory, including the narration of Galvão Bueno, at the 1991 Brazilian Grand Prix at Interlagos, following a challenging race where he was mostly stuck in sixth gear and also marking the first time he won in his hometown of Sao Paulo. We also see possible thoughts and experiences, interspersed with images of the race, that led Ayrton, played by Gabriel Leone, to this point in his career in addition to some iconic characters who were a part of his life that year, including Xuxa (Pâmela Tomé), Alain Prost (Matt Mella) and the McLaren team principal, Ron Dennis (Patrick Kennedy) and Galvão Bueno (Gabriel Louchard).

Over the course of six episodes, Senna will showcase, for the first time, Ayrton’s journey through triumph, disappointment, joy and sorrow, unveiling his personality and personal relationships. The fictional series starts with the genesis of the three-time Formula 1 champion’s motor racing career, when he moves to England to compete in Formula Ford, and until his tragic accident in Imola, Italy, during the San Marino Grand Prix. 

With Vicente Amorim as showrunner and co-director, alongside with Julia Rezende, Senna is produced by Gullane with the support of Senna Brands and the driver’s family. The exciting story of one of the world’s greatest sports heroes of all time also stars Alice Wegmann (Lilian Vasconcelos, Ayrton’s first wife), Camila Márdila (Vivianne Senna, his sister), Christian Malheiros (Maurinho, his friend), Gabriel Louchard (Galvão Bueno), Hugo Bonemer (Nelson Piquet) and others.
