    He was still active with Mercedes and always good for some provocative quote. I'll miss his comments and insights.
    In the end, it was the lung damage from the fire that eventually caught up with him. If you have a chance to see the 2013 film Rush, it's well done and worth checking out.
    Nice write-up here:

    A great hero, to be missed. His epic battle with Hunt the Shunt got me into the sport ----- 43 years ago.

    Along with Charlie Whiting's passing earlier this year, these two icons of the sport will be missed. That said, they both had long and productive / interesting lives. No one can ask for more than that.

    RIP, Mr Lauda.

    very sad news; one of the most influential drivers ever, in F1

    +1 on the "Rush" movie made a few years ago, very well done & Niki even said he approved of it

    I'm too young to have watched Niki race, but watching videos and hearing other drivers speak about him, it's obvious he's one of the top drivers to ever compete in F1, and possibly the most unique in his approach to driving. Sad to see him go.

    Another +1 for Rush. I wasn't sure what to expect from an F1 movie based on the Lauda/Hunt rivalry, but man...this movie got it right.

    The cars then weren’t much more than superkarts.
