Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost

The documentary SENNA, about the life and racing times of Formula One legend Ayrton Senna is coming to U.S. theaters on August 12. Unfortunately, it's very a limited initial release – just two theaters, one in L.A. and the other in New York City. The film will have a wider U.S. release in the following weeks, though will still only appear on a fraction of the screens that typical summer blockbusters do.

You can read our review of SENNA in anticipation of the film's release, and its makers have given us access to an exclusive clip to show you. In this clip, Ayrton and his arch rival Alain Prost are being interviewed. It's the early days of their driving together for McLaren, and the inherent conflict of having the sport's two best drivers compete on the same team is clearly evident, even in such a brief clip.

If the clip after the jump whets your appetite, you can check the movie's official Facebook page for theaters and showtimes to see if SENNA is coming to a town near you. If you're more the stay-at-home type, you can already pre-order the two-disc documentary set from the Official F1 Store.
