'We all loved and admired Niki': Arnold Schwarzenegger delivers eulogy at Niki Lauda's funeral

Arnold Schwarzenegger led tributes to Formula One legend Niki Lauda today as hundreds of mourners attended his funeral in Vienna and his grieving widow placed a racing helmet on his coffin.

Birgit Lauda, 40, and the driver's sons Mathias and Lucas laid wreaths, a red helmet and pictures of the Austrian motor racing champion on his coffin at St. Stephen's Cathedral in his home city of Vienna today.

Schwarzenegger told mourners that 'we all loved and admired Niki', saying: 'We admired his courage, his will, his strength, his love.'

Niki Lauda was a friend, a mentor, a hero. In this never-before-published interview, Niki Lauda shares what he learned throughout his incredible life. He speaks about success, about winning, about losing. And most importantly: about learning.

Thank you, Niki. For everything.

Niki Lauda (1949-2019)

Mercedes will keep Niki Lauda tribute star on its F1 car "forever"



Mercedes will keep the red three-pointed star on its Formula 1 car's engine cover and facsimile Niki Lauda autograph on the nose permanently.

Those livery tweaks and a red halo were adopted for the Monaco Grand Prix weekend in tribute to the team's non-executive chairman Lauda after his death earlier this week.

While the halo colour change is temporary, Mercedes motorsport chief Toto Wolff said the other Lauda touches would stay.

"I'm really happy how we started off this weekend with the red halo, and the little star - which is going to stay on the car forever - and the signature. It was nicely done," he said when asked about the livery changes by Autosport.
