3-time F1 champion Niki Lauda released from Austrian hospital

Three-time Formula 1 champion and Mercedes F1 executive Niki Lauda has left Vienna's general hospital in Austria after a three-month recovery from a lung transplant.

"Yes, Niki Lauda was discharged from the AKH and now he goes into rehabilitation," doctor Walter Klepetko told Austrian media outlet Osterreich newspaper.

A few days ago, the Mercedes team chairman and F1 legend called Lewis Hamilton on the phone and told the championship leader that doctors had done a "perfect job."


It is believed 69-year-old Lauda's new lung works well. Asked how Lauda's period of formal rehabilitation will proceed, Klepetko revealed: "It will be especially for Niki's physical fitness. This is typical after such a long period in hospital."

As for whether everything is functioning well with the lung, he added, "I'm more than satisfied with the result, and believe me, that's good. Luckily, we never had big problems at any time."

Osterreich said Lauda's rehabilitation will last for several weeks. Lauda is not expected to attend any of the three remaining F1 races on the 2018 calendar.
