Nikki Lauda

Nikki Lauda, team principle of the Mercedes Formula 1 team in pensive mood during the 2017 British Grand Prix. An Icon of Formula 1, Lauda was lucky to escape with his life after crashing at the German Grand Prix in 1976 where he received the last rites. He recovered from his burns and returned to the Italian Grand Prix four weeks later.
