Default Niki Lauda RIP

Farewell to the legend. Only 70. A lovely bloke. Always took time to come and talk to the race marshals and officials and send video messages for training sessions.

A brilliant competitor and a major loss to the sport.

RIP Champ

What a comeback he made after the near fatal, horrific fireball of an accident; 40 days!

I'm sure himself and James Hunt are causing havoc where ever they are now. A true hero who wasnt afraid of speaking his mind and never worried about PC nonesense. A huge loss to the world if motorsport RIP Niki

A true hero of the sport.

I can’t think of a greater sporting comeback than when he sat back into his car 6 weeks after nearly being burned to death.

Was always hoping to see him back around the paddock in a F1 race again after his lung transplant last year but wasn’t meant to be. The sport of F1 is truly in mourning today.

RIP ya legend.

he was a proper F1 legend.
if anyone hasn't seen "Rush" - the Lauda v Hunt story, its highly recommended.
RIP

Seconded. Great watch, and I wouldn't be a Motor Sport enthusiast by any stretch.
