Niki Lauda: a single-minded F1 champion who beat the best of his age Richard Williams. Read more. Timeline Niki Lauda's career Show 22 February Makes his Formula One debut for March-Ford in his home Austrian Grand Prix.
April September Having left Ferrari for Brabham, Lauda retires from Formula One at the end of the season. Lauda returns to the sport, this time driving for McLaren.
Wins his 25th Formula One race at the Netherlands Grand Prix. Returns to Formula One in a consultancy role for Ferrari. He chose to limit reconstructive surgery to replacing the eyelids and getting them to work properly.
After the accident he always wore a cap to cover the scars on his head. He arranged for sponsors to use the cap for advertising.
With Lauda out of the contest, Carlos Reutemann was taken on as his replacement. Ferrari boycotted the Austrian Grand Prix in protest at what they saw as preferential treatment shown towards McLaren driver James Hunt at the Spanish and British Grands Prix.
Lauda missed only two races, appearing at the Monza press conference six weeks after the accident with his fresh burns still bandaged.
He finished fourth in the Italian GP , despite being, by his own admission, absolutely petrified. F1 journalist Nigel Roebuck recalls seeing Lauda in the pits, peeling the blood-soaked bandages off his scarred scalp.
He also had to wear a specially adapted crash helmet so as to not be in too much discomfort. In Lauda's absence, Hunt had mounted a late charge to reduce Lauda's lead in the World Championship standings.
Hunt and Lauda were friends away from the circuit, and their personal on-track rivalry, while intense, was cleanly contested and fair.
Following wins in the Canadian and United States Grands Prix, Hunt stood only three points behind Lauda before the final race of the season, the Japanese Grand Prix.
Lauda qualified third, one place behind Hunt, but on race day there was torrential rain and Lauda retired after two laps. He later said that he felt it was unsafe to continue under these conditions, especially since his eyes were watering excessively because of his fire-damaged tear ducts and inability to blink.
Hunt led much of the race before his tires blistered and a pit stop dropped him down the order. He recovered to third, thus winning the title by a single point.
Lauda's previously good relationship with Ferrari was severely affected by his decision to withdraw from the Japanese Grand Prix, and he endured a difficult season , despite easily winning the championship through consistency rather than outright pace.
Lauda disliked his new teammate, Reutemann, who had served as his replacement driver. Lauda was not comfortable with this move and felt he had been let down by Ferrari.
The Brabham BT46 Alfa Romeo flat began the season at the third race in South Africa. It suffered from a variety of troubles that forced Lauda to retire the car 9 out of 14 races.
Lauda's best results, apart from the wins in Sweden and Italy after the penalization of Mario Andretti and Gilles Villeneuve, were 2nd in Monaco and Great Britain, and a 3rd in the Netherlands.
The Alfa flat engine was too wide for ground effect designs in that the opposed cylinder banks impeded with the venturi tunnels, so Alfa designed a V12 for It was the fourth cylinder engine design that propelled the Austrian in F1 since Lauda's F1 season was again marred by retirements and poor pace, even though he won the non-championship Dino Ferrari Grand Prix with the Brabham-Alfa.
In the single make BMW M1 Procar Championship , driving for the British Formula Two team Project Four Racing led by Ron Dennis when not in a factory entry, Lauda won three races for P4 plus the series.
Decades later, Lauda won a BMW Procar exhibition race event before the German Grand Prix. In September, Lauda finished 4th in Monza, and won the non-WC Imola event, still with the Alfa V12 engine.
After that, Brabham returned to the familiar Cosworth V8. In late September, during practice for the Canadian Grand Prix , Lauda cut short a practice session and promptly informed team principal Ecclestone, that he wished to retire immediately, as he had no more desire to "continue the silliness of driving around in circles".
Lauda, who in the meantime had founded Lauda Air, a charter airline, returned to Austria to run the company full-time.
Lauda proved he was when, in his third race back, he won the Long Beach Grand Prix. Before the opening race of the season at Kyalami race track in South Africa , Lauda was the organiser of the so-called "drivers' strike"; Lauda had seen that the new Super Licence required the drivers to commit themselves to their present teams and realised that this could hinder a driver's negotiating position.
The drivers, with the exception of Teo Fabi , barricaded themselves in a banqueting suite at Sunnyside Park Hotel until they had won the day.
The season proved to be transitional for the McLaren team as they were making a change from Ford - Cosworth engines, to TAG -badged Porsche turbo engines, and Lauda did not win a race that year, with his best finish being second at Long Beach behind his teammate John Watson.
Some political maneuvering by Lauda forced a furious chief designer John Barnard to design an interim car earlier than expected to get the TAG-Porsche engine some much needed race testing; Lauda nearly won the last race of the season in South Africa.
Lauda won a third world championship in by half a point over teammate Alain Prost , due only to half points being awarded for the shortened Monaco Grand Prix.
His Austrian Grand Prix victory that year is so far the only time an Austrian has won his home Grand Prix. However, during the two seasons together, they had a good relationship and Lauda later said that beating the talented Frenchman was a big motivator for him.
Lauda won five races, while Prost won seven. However, Lauda, who set a record for the most pole positions in a season during the season, rarely matched his teammate in qualifying.
Despite this, Lauda's championship win came in Portugal , when he had to start in eleventh place on the grid, while Prost qualified on the front row.
Prost did everything he could, starting from second and winning his seventh race of the season, but Lauda's calculating drive which included setting the fastest race lap , passing car after car, saw him finish second behind his teammate which gave him enough points to win his third title.
However, as it was his last race with Lotus before joining Williams in , Lotus boss Peter Warr refused to give Mansell the brakes he wanted for his car and the Englishman retired with brake failure on lap As Lauda had passed the Toleman of F1 rookie Ayrton Senna for third place only a few laps earlier, Mansell's retirement elevated him to second behind Prost.
The season was a disappointment for Lauda, with eleven retirements from the fourteen races he started.
He did not start the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps after crashing and breaking his wrist during practice, and he later missed the European Grand Prix at Brands Hatch ; John Watson replaced him for that race.
He did manage fourth at the San Marino Grand Prix , 5th at the German Grand Prix , and a single race win at the Dutch Grand Prix where he held off a fast finishing Prost late in the race.
This proved to be his last Grand Prix victory and also the last Formula One Grand Prix held in the Netherlands. After announcing his impending retirement at the Austrian Grand Prix , he retired for good at the end of that season.
Lauda's final Formula One Grand Prix drive was the inaugural Australian Grand Prix in Adelaide , South Australia. After qualifying 16th, a steady drive saw him leading by lap However, the McLaren's ceramic brakes suffered on the street circuit and he crashed out of the lead at the end of the long Brabham Straight on lap 57 when his brakes finally failed.
He was one of only two drivers in the race who had driven in the non-championship Australian Grand Prix , the other being World Champion Keke Rosberg , who won in Adelaide in and would take Lauda's place at McLaren in Lauda's helmet was originally a plain red with his full name written on both sides and the Raiffeisen Bank logo in the chin area.
He wore a modified AGV helmet in the weeks following his Nürburgring accident so as the lining would not aggravate his burned scalp too badly.
In , upon his return to McLaren, his helmet was white and featured the red "L" logo of Lauda Air instead of his name on both sides, complete with branding from his personal sponsor Parmalat on the top.
From —, the red and white were reversed to evoke memories of his earlier helmet design. In Lauda returned to Formula One in a managerial position when Luca di Montezemolo offered him a consulting role at Ferrari.
Halfway through the season Lauda assumed the role of team principal of the Jaguar Formula One team. The team, however, failed to improve and Lauda was made redundant, together with 70 other key figures, at the end of In September he was appointed non-executive chairman of the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team.
Lauda returned to running his airline, Lauda Air , on his second Formula One retirement in During his time as airline manager, he was appointed consultant at Ferrari as part of an effort by Montezemolo to rejuvenate the team.
In late , he started a new airline, Niki. NEM 1. AVT 2. ITA 2. ZDA 4. Brabham BT45C. Alfa Romeo V Brabham BT ZZDA Ret.
