R.I.P.....Niki Lauda...

The word Legend is used a lot...there's a few in F1/Motorsports...
This Guy is definitely one...

Have Massive respect for people that do things that maybe I couldn't...and to get back in an
F1 car ,and drive 100% after that accident...really not sure I would have the guts...

Always listened and enjoyed what he had to say,very honest guy...

Proper Legend of F1..will be badly missed.
Just heard this news and very sad indeed!.... :( I have a lot of respect for Niki. He made a brilliant comeback after his accident and after his career became friends to towards James Hunt.

What a legend!!!....... RIP Niki Lauda.
It's easy to say great things about someone after they've gone. But the sign of a truly great man is when great things were said about him while he was still alive.
And with Niki that's happened in spades.

In my younger years I was a big James Hunt fan. So for me, back then, Lauda was the arch enemy.
But as I grew up and I got to understand the guy a little more I began to appreciate him a little more.
And over the years that appreciation just grew and grew.
Incredibly talented, brave beyond words, a smart businessman, and what I liked most of all, just a plain old straight talker! How could you not hold a man like him in the highest admiration?

Times like this are sad for family and friends.
But for the rest of us, those who didn't know him personally, now is the time to enjoy the memories.

Got to be one of the bravest men in sport.

You all know the story of how he got went from death bed to be driving in a GP 40 days later.

He was a fabulous driver,but what happened in 1976,made him an extraordinary human being.

RIP Mr Lauda.

A huge loss to F1 and it's fans. The man was made of iron, such courage and humility. He will be sorely missed. RIP Niki Lauda.

Rounding to the nearest whole numbers makes them pointless.

I like John Watson but my opinion on him has just dropped a little if he really said this:

Even Toto has been too upset and felt like a zombie, the past 48 hours....He supports Hamilton's decision.

Must admit some of the questions asked at these press conferences are a little stupid and obvious, IMO.

Leclerc fastest in third practice, but Vettel crashes before qualifying.

Ferrari just never learn.
They choose not to send Leclerc out again in Q1 because they think he's done enough, and the result of that is... P16. Unbelievable.
The Mercs look unbeatable on pace though. 0.5 ahead of the best RB and 0.8 ahead of the Ferrari.
It's looking like Hamilton (P1) v Bottas (P2) again. The start will be absolutely vital.

Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.

What are Ferrari doing?...

New team principle in the team and they are screwing up. I hope Vettel crashes out of the race and Charles does some great passes to get into the points. Vettel has touched the wall almost 6 times during practice, eventually ending in a crash towards the end, before qualifying.

Ferrari will never win the Constructors title at this rate.

Bloody hell...it's obvious they wanna distance Vettel and Leclerc points wise,but thats
bordering on the fuckin ridiculous...this early in season and constructors has gone for em....
Need a couple of Merc double take outs to have any chance,Red Bull will be pushing them
soon at this rate...

Louis Proves again...apart from Vestappen....Maybe Leclerc...he's head and shoulders above...
what an Amazing Quali...Again....He really really wanted that one,being Niki s weekend..

Looking forward to seeing the town and boats in harbour....cos racing wise Monacos a bit of a
dull one...but strangely enough still seem to enjoy watching it......

Wow, just made it. That was quite a drive from Hamilton to win on those tyres. It reminded me of the Mansell/Senna in 1992.... Verstappen trying to get past Hamilton.

As luck has it, Vettel manages to get 2nd and Bottas 3rd.
