Widow sues Niki Lauda’s foundation for 30m

Niki Lauda’s widow is suing for a big chunk of the late triple world champion’s net worth. It is believed that at the time of his death in 2019, the 70-year-old and former Mercedes team shareholder was worth somewhere in the range of $200-500 million. And according to the Austrian newspaper Kurier, two lawsuits relating to what now happens to that money are now underway in court in Vienna. Lauda’s wife at the time of his death, 44-year-old Birgit Wetzinger, is asking the court to rule that 20-30 million euros from the assets of his foundation are awarded to her. However, proceeds from the foundation were more open to dispute – and so Birgit filed the proceedings against it.
