Nygaard on Lauda

Our Grand Prix Drivers Club Formula 1 photographer friend and colleague Peter Nygaard has dipped into his archive to produce this group of photographs of Niki Lauda’s life in racing as a special tribute.

Peter’s Grand Prix Photo website not only highlights some of the spectacular modern images from current grand prix racing but a number of iconic photographs of grand prix racing in previous years.

Look up Grand Prix Photo and enjoy.
