As I said before, Senna was a great man who happened to be a great driver. His work, influence and achievements outside the race tracks were no less impressive than his superhuman driving skills. And boy, could he drive!
JFK is part of America's soul and he did change the course of history and I think he deserves the same respect Brazilians give to Senna.
His response simply shows how little he knows about the world
And how US centric his thinking is
