Deegan is the best

Truly a man of good will. Despite all the times he might've been cheated out of victories, he showed the people of Brazil what hard work could achieve. He felt guilty being born in a richer family, and in the country of Brazil, the gap between poor in rich is still wide. He believed everyone should be given a fair chance, and he planned on making a school for anyone to learn, before the tragedy struck in what became his last race.

Ayrton Senna is a epic driver, sadly, he had a car accident when he was driving. He has no injured or anything, but he don't breath. I was crying when I heard the news that he had a terible car accident.
