Tickets for the JA on F1 screening of the documentary film "Senna" in London on May 3rd, went on sale today and sold out in 40 minutes.

Many thanks to all the readers who bought tickets and to those who missed out there will be another chance to get your hands on a pair of tickets in a competition nearer the time.

This will be a rare opportunity for fans in the UK to see the film before the premiere.

The film opened in Japan and Brazil last Autumn to rave reviews and recently won the Audience award for world documentary at the Sundance Film Festival. Using only archive footage, it charts the story of Ayrton Senna, considered by many to be the greatest driver in the sport's history, from his arrival in F1 to his death on May 1 1994.

I think it's a masterpiece both in its telling of a thrilling but tragic story and the way it brings the sport to life so vividly, in all its good and bad shades.

Much of Senna's life was lived on public display and there are some extraordinary scenes in this film, simply because he had a camera on him so much of the time.

After the screening Director Asif Kapadia and writer/producer Manish Pandey will do a Q&A session with me on stage and we will have some very special guests who played their part in the Senna story.
