Niki Lauda Progress

Until now we have not commented on Niki Lauda’s situation following surgery to replace one of his lungs but the Viennese Hospital (AKH) gave some positive indication today that Niki is on the way to recovery.

This is particularly good news to many of the members of the Grand Prix Drivers Club who raced in the same period as Lauda. Indeed his present-day role at Mercedes and the Formula 1 team has been one of the more forthright and positive things about today’s grand prix scene.

We hope that he will continue to progress and if history is repeated we are likely to see him back at the helm of Mercedes very soon.
