“I’ve been through a lot and I realise the future can’t be controlled. I’m not worried. You can always learn to overcome difficulties.”
“You appreciate that it is very easy to die and you have to arrange your life to cope with that reality.”
It was with great sadness I read that Formula 1 great Niki Lauda had passed away at the age of 70. Courage comes in many forms and he had it throughout his life. The courage to go against his family’s wishes and follow his dream, the courage to drive a car at the fastest of speeds on all kinds of tracks and the courage to race (and win) again after a horrific accident that had lasting physical and mental damage. Farewell Niki Lauda, who was always far more than a 3 time Formula 1 World Champion.
Very sad. I’ve been modest about is achievements. He was rather extraordinary. And I loved the film Rush, which tells a lot about his life.
RIP, I guess I saw a movie about him and another driver as well, forgot the movie name but I remember his story
I did love that movie. I even wrote a review on it. I should watch it again. I’d be curious to read his autobiography too
Very good review indeed 👍
Not that old, I have to say… RIP & love his words.
He packed so much into them. A true inspiration and a sad loss.
