After a couple of seasons in F3 and sports cars Lauda took a bank loan to finance a season of Formula 2 and a one-off drive in his home GP in 1971. He had another mortgage to pay for his March drive 1972 and a pay-as-you-race deal with BRM 1973. Niki retired and built up his airline business between 1979-1982. F1 expert for RTL since 1988. His son Mathias has driven in F3000 2004, GP2 2005 and DTM 2006-2009
Niki has bought a "ticket" for a space flight in 2011 with ’SpaceShip Two'.
Niki won the world championship 1984 in a McLaren despite never sitting on pole in any of the season's 16 races
In late 2003, he started a new airline, Niki. Lauda holds a commercial pilot's license and from time to time acts as a captain on the flights of his airline.
2012 Niki left his position as the Non-Executive Director of the Air Berlin Board of Directors, to focus on his new role at the Mercedes AMG F1 Team.
