P38 in workshop has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
A true legend and a straight talker.His comeback after the big crash was remarkable enough,starting a successful airline is a rare achievement and winning three world titles is a very rare feat.To have done all these things in one lifetime marks one out as an exceptional human being.The gap he leaves will be noticed.

Very sad news. A real sporting icon. A brave man who was never afraid to voice his opinions (which were normally right). He will be sadly missed from both life and the pitlane. RIP.

Yes a real loss to motorsport, i must admit when he was racing being english i tended to support Hunt and others but over time my respect for him grew and he was a true legend. My thoughts go out to his family.

I remember him on TV, winning the GP of Monaco in 1975. I was 12.
It's a shock.

Originally not the most popular driver with UK fans - think British GPs 1974 and 1976. But his integrity, driving skills, determination and (not least) sense of humour won us all over. He will be sorely missed - including his amazingly candid comments on Martin Brundle's grid walks!

Obviously a big inspiration to a lot of people with his comeback after the big accident.
When I heard it on the radio this morning not only was I was saddened but I forgot that he was 2 years younger than me. RIP Niki

I was truly saddened, having been a huge fan of his from when he first got into F1. I remember well his comeback from the fire.

I will miss his direct and humorous comments. A truly inspirational and very brave man.

Thanks Niki for all the wonderful memories. He will always be remembered in motorsport history

RIP Niki Lauda.
James will be waiting for you at the Pearly Gates.

We've lost one of the last of the heroes. Very sad news and he will be sorely missed. RIP Niki.

Was so sad to hear this - A true legend.

As a kid I seem to remember a documentary about him on the TV (i assume BBC), I would guess it was late 70's?
Have looked a few times but never found anything, did I imagine it?
