The best quotes of Niki Lauda

We will try to bring the best quotes of former F1 driver and the legend of Formula 1 Niki Lauda, a three-time world champion.

Running an airline is the most difficult job in the world. Racing was more dangerous for my life.


Patience is a virtue in life, of course, but it’s not something we F1 people have too much of.


After my accident, I never worried about how I looked.


When, after the accident, I came out into the world and people looked at me, they were shocked. It upset me. I thought they were impolite not to hide their negative emotions about my look.


In racing, you want to win – there are no rules, and you can do whatever you want. Flying a plane is the opposite: you respect rules and fly to the rules. You can’t possibly compare the two.


For sure, when you are being beaten by your team-mate, it hurts.


When I was in motor racing, I had taken the decision to risk my life. But when you run an airline, and more than 200 people want to go from A to B – and they don’t arrive – that’s a different responsibility.


People say that F1 is blessed with the ‘best drivers in the world,’ but I want to witness the ‘total best drivers in the world,’ and this means taking away the elements that make their job easier.


My life is worth more than a title.
