Niki Lauda has undergone a lung transplant in Vienna after being taken ill on holiday. Fingers crossed for a full and speedy recovery.

Yes it is.... from the inhalation of toxic fumes in the fire.

https://au.eurosport.com/formula-1/l...15/story.shtml

I know he has also had at least two kidney transplants, also as a result of damage in that accident. The first kidney some years ago was from his brother, and a more recent transplant was from a stewardess whom he met whilst flying one of his planes.... she his now his wife and Mother of his young twins..

One thing we know is Niki is a fighter. Wishing Niki a full and speedy recovery.
I have always been a huge fan of his, going back to his days at March, and when he joined my beloved BRM that was the icing on the cake..

Get well soon Niki.

I didn’t know about the kidney transplants until I was reading the news about his lungs. Niki is certainly a fighter. I suppose by rights he should be dead.

P38 in workshop has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
One of the elite group of people who is universally regarded as a legend-best wishes to him.The F1 paddock needs a man who gives direct answers to questions and I don't doubt he will be back sooner than anybody thinks possible.

Hear, hear.


We need more no nonsense straight shooters in the paddock. Always loved Niki for his no bullshit taken, and none given attitude. Get well soon Mr Lauda.

On balance I agree. I think sometimes Lauda veers into Jacques Villeneuve territory and likes the sound of his own voice a bit too much, but in general he plays a pretty straight bat, and is a welcome antidote to the stuffy corporatism of much of the paddock.

With his attitude i would not bet against him being in the paddock at the next GP telling everyone what to do.
A Real legend in motor racing and let us hope he recovers as fast as before.

According to the doctor, the operation is NOT related to Lauda’s Nürburgring accident, which, I must confess, surprises me.
