Niki Lauda died

One of the greatest F1 drivers, three times champion and after a horrific crash on the Nürburgring he came back to race after 42 days. Business man, leader and model for many over here finally died after a long battle with the complications of his crash injuries.


Sad

I had hoped he would recover from his lung transplant, he seemed to be the voice of reason in the F1 paddock in recent years.


If you haven't seen the film Rush, it's worth watching.

Rush with hush, (and clunks).

A real sporting legend.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaim: "Wow, what a ride".

Do you think he was cremated - again?


Too soon?
