Niki Lauda: Tributes paid after F1 legend dies aged 70

Three-time Formula 1 world champion Niki Lauda produced the “most courageous act of any sportsman” in returning to racing so soon after a horrific crash, says former team-mate John Watson.
Austrian Lauda, who won the drivers championship in 1975, 1977 and 1984, died aged 70 on Monday.
John Watson: “Nobody realised the actual damage to Niki.”
Jackie Stewart: “I’ve known Niki for a long time and he was just entering grand prix racing when I was retiring.”
Toto Wolff: “Niki will always remain one of the greatest legends of our sport – he combined heroism, humanity and honesty inside and outside the cockpit.”
