Niki Lauda R.I.P.

Formula 1 motor racing legend Niki Lauda has died aged 70.
One of the greatest, his battles on and off the track with James Hunt were especially memorable.

RIP
He was lucky to survive that crash although I think breathing in all those fumes buggered him up inside.

A three times World Champion and surviving a horrific crash, he was a remarkable man.

We’ll miss seeing you at the track Niki...

RIP

If you ever feel sorry for your self and think you've been dealt a bad hand of cards, you could not do better than follow Niki's example of courage and determination in whatever walk of life you choose.
Great bloke and will be sadly missed....RIP Niki....

Re: Niki Lauda R.I.P.

I remember the crash ... pretty horrendous.

RIP Niki

I guess you can measure someone's worth by the pleasure they bring to other people ... or they gain their admiration by their fighting spirit.
Some people are so self-involved they'd miss no one but themselves. (Is it possible to do that? Miss yourself?)

Re: Niki Lauda R.I.P.

Never really been into formula 1 but Lauda must be one of the most memorable names, even if only for the wrong reasons. Anyone who remembers his horrendous crash thought he would surely die from his injuries but somehow he survived. He also won the World Championship three times.

R.I.P Niki

Hi

I could not agree more.

People need inspiration and he was very much in the public eye.

Re: Niki Lauda R.I.P.

Yes heard the news this morning,
After his horrific crash he was back racing 40 days later, he was given the last rites by a priest and was not expected to make it, yet somehow he did, he raced in the era when f1 was very dangerous with one or two drivers killed almost every week, and did a lot to influence the organisers to take safety seriously ( along with Jackie Stewart) , he went on to run his own airline when he hung up his helmet...last year he underwent a lung transplant, and was making a good recovery.

RIP, niki lauda
