Sadly, I have just read where Niki Lauda has died from complications associated with catching the flu after a lung transplant earlier this year.
I have always considered Niki to be one of those super heroes who fought back from massive injuries to stand on top of the world for a 3rd time in 1984.

My condolences to the family and friends of the 3 times World champion.

RIP Niki Lauda.

New Commodore Hey! So you used your own money? Would you like to buy a used bridge?

World champion in 1975, given last rites in 1976, WDC again in 1977 and again in 84. A major advocate for driver safety.

RIP.

When I read the news today I was genuinely shocked. While I knew of his issues in the past year I certainly wasn't expecting this. Agree with the rest of you guys, he was an absolute legend. To come back from that accident in 1976 as fast as he did is almost superhuman. Rest in peace Niki Lauda.

A little embellishment I am sure, but my favorite scene from the movie "Rush":

A true Champion in every sense of the word. Niki was underrated in my opinion and the character it took to come back after such a horrific accident speaks volumes for the man. Will be missed.

Sometimes it's good to be BLUE!!!!!!
