Less than a year before his tragic accident, Brazilian Formula 1 legend Ayrton Senna signs an autograph at Paris airport.

Ayrton Senna autograph for a fan, David Mette. One page, front and back. In French. 10 cm x 15 cm. Paris, 1-4 July 1993. Excellent condition. Single piece.

David Mette recounts his encounter with Ayrton Senna in early July 1993.

How did you find Ayrton Senna?

I wasn't a fan in the truest sense of the word, but I admired this great driver. When he arrived at Charles de Gaulle airport, he gave me this signature on the way out of the plane, at Terminal 1 in Roissy, he had traveled with the Brazilian company and was going to the French F1 circuit. In fact, I was working at the airport, so I could access certain restricted areas of the airport, and that's how I got the chance to meet some celebrities. I was lucky to get close to him, because he was with a lot of people.

What memory do you have of the pilot?

A person of great kindness and elegance. He was dressed in light, maybe cream-colored pants and coat, and he was tanned.

What exactly happened?

I handed him this card, a form filled out by all foreign passengers arriving at the airport and requested by the immigration authorities, because I didn't have anything else, and I didn't have a pen. He responded positively to my request, stopped a few meters from the crowd, put down his suitcase and took a pen from his brown briefcase!

Were you able to take a picture with Senna?

Unfortunately I couldn't take pictures. At the time, there was no cell phone, I didn't have a camera with me.

Why are you selling this autograph?

I'd rather this document belong to a real Senna lover, maybe a Brazilian, than leave it in a drawer.

Why is this document rare?

Authentic Ayrton Senna autographs are very rare, he died young. Also, most are fake or in poor condition. This one is in perfect condition, authenticated... and signed less than a year before his tragic accident. The July 4th Grand Prix took place at Magny-Cours, it was his great rival Alain Prost who won the race, Senna taking only fourth place on his last trip to France .
