Niki Lauda Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Andreas Nikolaus Lauda, simply known Niki Lauda, was born on 22 February 1949, in Vienna, Austria. He is a famous racing car driver, known for winning the F1 World Championship title three times. During his career Lauda has been a part of such teams as “BRM”, “Ferrari”, “McLaren”, “March” and “Brabham”. Despite the fact that Niki does not race anymore, he is still involved in this sport and has various activities to take care of. Lauda is one of the most respected racing car drivers of all time, and there is no doubt that many people admire him and his work.

If you consider how rich Niki Lauda is, it can be said that Niki’s estimated net worth is $100 million. Undoubtedly, Niki gained a big part of this sum of money during his successful career as race car driver. Now Lauda’s net worth grows because of his other activities and projects that he is involved into. Some of these activities include writing, commentating on races, and managing racing teams.

Niki Lauda Net Worth $100 Million

Niki began his career as a race car driver while driving such formulas as “Mini” and “Formula Vee”. In order to become a part of the team called “March”, Niki even had to take a loan and his family strongly disapproved with his decisions. In 1973 he became a part of another team, called “BRM”, but he again had to take a loan and his net worth was not that high then. As Niki was able to show his driving skills and other teams noticed them, in 1974 Lauda received an invitation to become part of the “Ferrari” team. His decision to accept this invitation had a huge impact on the growth of Niki Lauda’s net worth. One year later Niki became the F1 World Champion and two years later, in 1977 he was able to win this title again. It added a lot to Lauda’s popularity and net worth. However, in between when he was racing for the “Ferrari” team in 1976, Niki experienced severe injuries in an accident and his car burst into flames; he was severely burnt besides inhaling toxic gasses which damaged his lungs and blood. Regardless, he returned to race less than two months later.

In 1978 Lauda decided to retire from this sport, but in 1982 he returned to racing, while being a part of the “McLaren”team. This made Nika’s net worth grow again, and regained his popularity. In 1984 Lauda was able to win the title of F1 World Champion again. Despite the success he had, Niki decided to retire from racing in 1985.

Later Lauda worked as a manager in the “Ferrari” team, and in 2012 he became the non-executive chairman of the “Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team”. In addition to this, Lauda has written such books as “My Years with Ferrari”, “Meine Story”, “The Art and Science of Grand Prix Driving” and others. These books also contributed to Niki’s net worth, as does commentating on races for the German TV networks. Despite the fact that Lauda is now 66 years old, he still works hard and is involved in these various activities.

If to talk about Niki Lauda’s personal life, it can be said that he was married to Marlene Knaus(1976-1991), with whom he has two sons, of whom Matthias is also a racing driver. In 2008 Lauda married Birgit Wetzinger, with whom he has twins. Niki has another child from a previous relationship. All in all, Niki Lauda is one of the most famous race car drivers, who has achieved a lot during his career. Even now, when he does not race anymore, he still inspires many people and has many fans all over the world.

1 [re his injuries after famous 1976 accident] At the time I was upset by how people reacted. They wouldn't look me in the eye, which I thought was rude. But I have to say I was startled by the movie and I understand now. [Rival racer James] Hunt used to say to me: 'Niki, you're lucky. Some people are just born ugly, but you have the excuse of an accident.'
2 [re making of Rush (2013)] I had been approached before, but the ideas always seemed to me boring. Peter Morgan and Ron Howard - these are the right people. Ron Howard had no idea about racing. He was like a little kid, with unbelievable enthusiasm. But the story comes very well across.

1 Wears a Parmalat (Italian dairy) baseball cap at all times to cover his burn scars from his auto accident in 1976.
