R.I.P Niki Lauda

Recommended Posts

One of the old school Formula One drivers, Nikki Lauda has died.

 

To go on and win a world championship after coming so close to being burned alive is some feat.

 

RIP

He recently had a lung transplant. I wonder if this was a legacy from his crash where the toxic fumes from burning fibre glass almost killed him.

 

Lovely tribute from Billy Monger on the BBC News  just now.

I watched the film Rush a couple of weeks back on Netflix. I t documented his big rivalry with James Hunt in 1976.Hunt would have never won his F1 championship had Lauda not had his horrific accident.Good movie with that Thor actor as Hunt. RIP Niki you outlived your rival and friend by a lot of years.
