Senna Teaser: Gabriel Leone switches to top gear in this biopic

Netflix released the teaser of Senna, a new limited series inspired by the life, career and relationships of the greatest Brazilian driver of all time, Ayrton Senna, starring Gabriel Leone.

The teaser of Senna opens with the 1991 Brazilian Grand Prix in Interlagos, where he is getting ready for the big race. He wears his helmet and zooms off in the fastest speed possible. We also see the teaser interspersed with moments from his childhood, first love, humiliations and other experiences before he reaches the finish line. That was the first time he won in his hometown of Sao Paulo.

The official logline reads, "Over the course of six episodes, Senna will, for the first time, depict the journey of overcoming obstacles, ups and downs, joys, and sorrows of Ayrton, exploring his personality and personal relationships. The starting point will be the beginning of the three-time Formula 1 champion's racing career when he moved to England to compete in Formula Ford, all the way to the tragic accident in Imola, Italy, during the San Marino Grand Prix."

The series will also feature Alice Wegmann, Camila Márdila, Christian Malheiros, Gabriel Louchard, Hugo Bonemer, Julia Foti, Marco Ricca, Pâmela Tomé, and Susana Ribeiro in the cast. In addition to the brazilian actors, Kaya Scodelario, who was previously announced, along with Matt Mella, Arnaud Viard, Joe Hurst, Johannes Heinrichs, Keisuke Hoashi, Leon Ockenden, Patrick Kennedy, Richard Clothier, Steven Mackintosh and Tom Mannion are also part of the series.

With Vicente Amorim as showrunner and co-director, alongside with Julia Rezende, Senna is produced by Fabiano Gullane and Caio Gullane with the support of Senna Brands and the driver’s family.

The film will hit the streaming giant this year. The makers have not announced a release date yet.
