I thought the tweet from Freddie Hunt was great.

My favorite book when I was a kid was James Hunt: Against the odds.

I *think* I can remember Hunt winning the 76 title, although I was only 3 at the time. Maybe it's one of the false memories that the experts say are probably not true.

Either way, it is fair to say that I am pretty sad about this whole thing. As happy as all Hunt fans are about him winning the title, what a fairytale it would have been if Lauda was champion in 76. Anyway, Lauda had so much success in 77 and later years, it's actually an amazing story.

F1 Legend.

The sport in those days was pretty brutal. 1970 and the WDC was awarded posthumously to Jochen Rhindt. James' championship was hobbled by Ferrari manipulating the rules and trying to disqualify McLaren at every turn. The oil cooler fiasco in Spain was a good example. So Whilst Niki had such a torrid time and nobody can convince me that he was anything but seriously brave (a hero) I think James was the deserved winner that year.

Overall I miss them both.

'Rindt ' . Sorry , my inner pedant needed an early morning fix , and now I am away to Oulton Park .



Hunt was mighty that year - on a charge he was indomitable . I was at Brands 76 and it was extraordinary , with a febrile atmosphere I had never felt before. Didn't actually like it that much but it was electric ...


But Lauda always , always , had an inevitability about his wins- remember how he won the 1984 WDC?

Frightening isn't it? I watched the GPs in Monaco of I think 1982 and 89 today on Sky.... Good Lord.. we just relied on three heights of armco as a barrier...I had one eye shut the whole time. Whether you supported Hunt, Lauda, Rindt, Senna, and the many more that died doing what they loved.. they were all legends in their own right..and all missed ..

I've not clicked on any of those news stories, made it a policy to avoid click-bait-ey articles in general.

Is it incorrect to observe that Watson would have been one of the drivers that kept driving past Niki Lauda while he was burning?

Yes, it is completely incorrect.

The race was stopped almost immediately, and the crashed car of Lauda plus those of Lunger and Ertl pretty well blocked the track.

Watson knelt with Lauda's head on his lap until he was taken away by ambulance.

Thanks Greem for the correction, perhaps I should have used another example where the race was not stopped.

I was lucky enough to meet Niki Lauda in 1974, when I was 14.

To do what he did, after that accident at the Nurburgring and then to win the WDC the following year takes some dong. R.I.P.
