Niki Lauda interview
Halibutboy Flatfish stashed this in Overcoming Adversity
Niki Lauda is the Austrian Formula One driver from the recent Ron Howard movie Rush, who was burnt up in a bad accident on the track. Find out what he thinks about the movie, James Hunt, and his scarred face.
Is that why he was attracted to Formula One? He wanted to test that stability?
“No. Formula One is simply about controlling these cars and testing your limits. This is why people race, to feel the speed, the car and the control. If in my time you pushed too far, you would have killed yourself. You had to balance on that thin line to stay alive.”
