Default RIP Niki Lauda

Maybe the greatest pure driver of all time.

Even the horrific injury in 1976 didn't stop him.

If you never saw one of his iterviews, you need to search and find one.

Great car guy.

And here is a very realistic re-enactment from the movie Rush.

May he RIP.

The movie Rush was a pretty good flick.

May he rest in peace. One of my favorite Formula 1 drivers ever. I saw him win at Long Beach in 1982 driving a McLaren. It was a miracle he survived his crash in 1976, let alone return to racing just I think 6 weeks later.

Very sorry to hear of his passing. Definitely one of the greatest F1 drivers of all time.
