When the question "who was the greatest driver of all time?" comes up, Ayrton Senna's name always gets dropped. The Brazillian won three F1 world championships before he tragically lost his life due to a steering failure at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. In his wake he left a foundation, the Instituto Ayrton Senna, that helps create opportunities for poor Brazilian children.

Polyphony has just announced that an agreement to include Senna-related content has been reached with his family and instutution, and that a portion of the proceeds of the game will benefit the foundation. Players will be able to follow Senna's career as updates to the game come out over time that cover the highpoints. What does this mean? It means you'll probably be able to drive a McLaren MP4/4.
