At least the ark can handle it and is still in existence and is still being used for the same purpose.

No, it's apparently lying on a mountain in the near east somewhere, but no-one is keen to find it. :deal:

They've found it allright, in Turkey of all places.
Huge thing too, with even fossilized dung and hay etc, hard to explain what else it could be  ;)

Niki Lauda was an icon and a man made of another substance altogether.

Who else would be back racing a couple of weeks later after having endured the agony and pain that he did???

Gout alone makes me stay home for that long for goodness sake!!!  :biggrin:

He was also considered one of the best Business Men that ever lived and was also described  by Dietrich Mateschitz who owns Red Bull as a Business Genius.

BERNIE ECLESTONE called him his best friend and the best negotiator he had ever seen and always turned to Niki Lauda for advice when in doubt!!!.

Niki Lauda was also the Non-Executive Chairman of Mercedes-Benz and was solely responsible for Lewis Hamilton's move to Mercedes Benz and the 5 resulting F1 world Championships that Mercedes-Benz and Hamilton had won.

He started three airlines all carrying his name and was the CEO and also a Pilot of these airlines.

He sold his last shares of his last airline "LAUDAMOTION" to Irish Carrier "Ryanair" at the end of 2018 and stayed on as Chairman of "Laudamotion' after being asked to do so by Ryanair before undergoing his lung transplant recently.

Sadly I think he knew it was time to consolidate!!!

RIP my Hero!!!!
