    Speechless, such an amazing talent, driver, business owner and mentor to many. A hard arse who just seemed to keep on going.

    Aside from his Motorsport achievements one bing that really stood out to me of his character was when a Lauda Air plane crashed, Niki was onsite, as deep as he could get in the investigation and took on Boeing in the process.

    Legend, RIP

    you can always hear them when they break and they stop the engine immediately so you can't do any more damage.

    What a career, what a life.

    Titles, cheating death and airlines.

    His brutal honesty was refreshing in that world.

    When I was a teen, all my mates heros were Moffat, Brock, Morris etc.,

    It was always Lauda for me.

    Is it crazy how saying sentences backwards creates backwards sentences saying how crazy it is?

    Pay driver? Yep, at the start.
    Took Larry Perkin's drive? Yep, but it's a cut throat world.
    I really respected him for pulling out of the Jap Grand Prix that handed the championship to Hunt. He didn't have to prove anything to any body.

    Seemed sharp, garrulous & pretty switched on for an old guy.

    Typical of my perceived sense of his humour. Horrified random onlookers who were also there to commemorate the anniversary of his Nurburgring crash.

    A pig's ear of a story
    Thirty years ago Niki Lauda crashed at Bergwerk during the German Grand Prix. The Austrian was trapped in the flaming wreck and had to be rescued by fellow drivers Arturo Merzario, Brett Lunger, Harald Ertl and Guy Edwards, who stopped and pulled Lauda from the remains of his car. He had suffered terrible burns but prompt action by the Ferrari team to have him flown to a hospital in Mannheim that was equipped to deal withy serious burns, saved Lauda's life, although he was seriously scarred. Lauda's recovery is now part of F1 folklore and the man himself has been an inspiration to generations. On Saturday afternoon Bernie Ecclestone, Lauda, Merzario, Karl-Heinz Zimmermann (an Austrian restaurateur and caterer to Ecclestone) and Matthias Lauda (son of Niki) went to the site of the crash, had some photos taken and enjoyed a drink to mark the accident.
    Zimmermann is renowned for his unusual sense of humour and had obtained a couple of pig's ears which Lauda pretended to find in the grass beside the road.

    He jerked off with the determination of someone within sight of Everestís summit, having lost all his friends and Sherpas, having run out of supplemental oxygen, but preferring death to failure.

    I was shocked when I saw that news pop up. I didn't realize he was so unwell.

    Such a smart and tough cookie - you could only have great respect for the man.
