Niki Lauda’s Joke – Long Beach Grand Prix 1983
Niki Lauda was an intense, analytical and fierce competitor. But he was also a multilayered, complex person who spoke his mind clearly. Among crew and friends he also could reveal a sharp sense of humor.
Poetics of Speed has been receiving some significant traffic lately. Ron Howard’s movie Rush has generated interest in Niki Lauda and my portraits “Niki Lauda – Detroit Grand Prix 1984” and “Niki Lauda With Balaclava – Monaco GP 1984” have made the front page of the Google image search for Lauda and brought thousands of visitors here. Wow! Thanks!
