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.

Rush

A wise man can learn more from his enemies than a fool from his friends

Nikki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) from the adrenalin-fulled sporting drama Rush (2013). Based on the true story of the fight for the 1976 Formula 1 championship, it tells the complex competitive relationship between the calculated Lauda and playboy James Hunt. You can find my review of the film here.
