Excerpt from San Marino GP chapter

Finally… I’ve finished the San Marino Grand Prix chapter of my book. Here’s an excerpt:

… it was obvious that Senna had been injured in some way — there was no movement in the cockpit. Upon impact, the right front suspension had broken, releasing the wheel from the chassis, which glanced Senna’s helmet, knocking the driver unconscious in the process. Senna’s head leaned motionless onto the right side of the cockpit for over a minute. Just as the medical car, carrying professor Sid Watkins, arrived at the scene, Senna’s helmet slightly moved away from the cockpit edge, to a more upright position. In the moments that followed, Watkins and his team extricated Senna from the wrecked Williams-Renault, and laid him on the ground. Quickly afterwards, the medical helicopter landed on the now-empty track, and right before Senna was rushed to Maggiore hospital, the triple World Champion opened his eyes.

I’ve already started reviewing the other chapters of part I of The Encounter Down Under. I reckon I’ll be finished before the end of May.
