Lower ride height? I’d prefer not to be at “Senna height” while racing around a track if you know anything about the history of the crash that ended his lifeSenna features a “Race Mode” with lower ride height and stiffer suspension setting
Obviously the steering shaft breaking is the story everybody knows, but why it broke is a story you have to dig deeper to find out about. They were saying his car was so low on the track that it would bottom out in the rear and snap oversteer. That caused him to have to violently turn the wheel to regain control (no big deal for him since he was a master). The data shows that he was moving the steering wheel in that manner when it is suspected the shaft broke. The track turned, he didn’t, end of senna.I didn’t know his car bottomed out.
