Pole in Montreal brings Lewis to 65, equal with his hero, Ayrton Senna.

In an incredibly generous gesture, the Senna family presented him with a race helmet Senna had worn.

Lewis is now just 3 behind Schumacher's all time record.

That one was a replica apparently, but he will get the original down the track. A very generous gesture indeed.

A proud moment for him.

RIP LJ - loved and never forgotten.

"It was dry for the second go-around. Grice, nervous, worrying about his Bathurst jinx, ran 2:25.9. The amazing Brock, using every last centimetre of bitumen, yet keeping the car straight and balanced and at full noise, came back with a staggering 2:20.0 as if to say: "Match that". And people just shook their heads, bit their lips and wondered who would be second".

The Peter Brock trophy is now where it belongs.

Is Senna not anyone's hero?

I was never really a fan. No denying his ability though.

I was always more of a Prost fan than a Senna fan personally.

Senna's driving tactics I was never a fan of, his ability, belief in himself and will to win was in a class of his own though.

There's no questioning Senna had an immense talent and self belief (much like Schumacher, Vettel, etc) but I wasn't a fan of his win at all costs attitude either

Not mine. I was born the year after Senna passed, and while I can appreciate the talent the guy had, I've never found myself to jump on the Senna train. From everything I've seen from back in his time, I'd say I wouldn't have been a fan of his if I was around then. I've always found that I'd have been more a Prost fan.
