F1 legend and non-executive chairman of the Mercedes F1 team, Niki Lauda is back in hospital under intensive care due to an attack of influenza.
Readers will be aware that Niki Lauda had undergone a dual lung transplant in 2018, due to a severe lung disease. At the time he had been given less than a week to live before the transplant.
This is not the first time Lauda has faced down the odds, most spectacularly returning from being burnt severely in his car at the 1976 German GP. Almost miraculously he raced again 40 days later in Italy.
