Ayrton Senna Net Worth $400 million
At a young age Ayrton developed an interest for motorsports and cars. However, he suffered from poor motor coordination, but eventually improved his skills and at the age of 13 was already competing in karting competitions. He attended Colegio Rio Branco and after matriculating, went to study business administration, but dropped out after a few months.
In 1977, Senna won the South American Kart Championship. Four years later, he moved to England and transitioned to single-seater racing, winning the Townsend-Thoreson Formula Ford 1600 Championship. He was then offered a drive for a Formula Ford 2000 team, and would win both the 1982 British and European Formula Ford 2000 championships. The following year, he won the British Formula Three Championship and the inaugural Macau Formula 3 Grand Prix.
Ayrton then started testing for Formula One teams, and was given a contract that would eventually increase his net worth. He drove with the relatively new team Toleman and teamed with Johnny Cecotto. He made his debut in the 1984 Brazilian Grand Prix, then getting two World Championship points at the South African Grand Prix as well as the Belgian Grand Prix. He started to develop the ability to provide very specific technical details about the performance of his cars and the tracks, which helped him continue to improve, and he took two more podium finishes in the season. In 1985, he was partnered with Lotus-Renault and would take his first pole position at the Portuguese Grand Prix. This was his first “Grand Slam” as he also set the fastest lap. He got another victory in wet conditions at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. His net worth was rising.
He started the next season well and won the Spanish Grand Prix though he had troubles in some races. He still won the Detroit Grand Prix later in the season. He won two races in a row in the next season, helping him take lead in the World Championship. However, with better performing cars from his rivals, he decided to move to McLaren in 1988.
He started to work with then double world champion Alain Prost in McLaren. The two would have a rivalry, but still worked together to prepare against the opposition, and the pair would win 15 of 16 races in the McLaren MP4/4. In 1988, Senna would win his first world championship, and during that year he broke several records. Prost would leave McLaren the following year, and Senna would become the world champion again in 1990 after a collision deciding victory against Prost, and would become the youngest three time world champion the following year.
He continued to race until 1994 when he crashed during the San Marino Grand Prix, his car going straight into the concrete retaining wall.
In his Formula One career, from 161 races, Senna had 41 wins and 80 podiums (first three), plus 65 pole positions and 19 fastest laps.
For his personal life, it is known that Senna was married to Lilian de Vasconcelos Souza from 1981 to 1982. He was also engaged to Adriane Yamin, but their relationship ended in 1988. He dated television star Xuxa from 1988 to 1990 and would then date Christine Ferracciu. It was also reported that he had an affair with model Carol Alt. At the time of his death, he was in a relationship with model Adriane Galisteu. He passed away as a result of the accident while racing at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix.
