I have heard this before. It's been said that he was shot whilst driving (theory basically goes that Senna's head slumps to the left and stops
moving before he crashes- suggesting injury, also there is a blip in the video at the same time- which is said to be interference from a bullet.) I
personally don't believe it. To hit someone in the head when they are travelling at 160mph+ would be incredibly hard, especially on a curved
Senna was probably the best driver ever to have competed in F1, he drove at the cars limit all the time, cars in the 1990s were not as safe as they
are today, not by a long, long way. Anyway the official line is that a piece of the suspension arm pierced through Senna's visor and killed him.
This, to me makes sense, when a car is travelling as fast as an F1 car does and a piece flies off it is going to be moving with a lot of force.
Interestingly (morbid but interesting) there doesn't seem to be any footage of the crash as it happened, 100% live. There is just footage before and
immediately after. I always thought the whole track was covered by cameras or a following F1 car would have caught the crash with its on board camera
-or even a spectator would have taken video.(If anyone is aware of any footage please do say)
Regardless, Senna was hugely talented and it's a tragic shame that he died.
