About this Paint

After the tragic passing of Niki Lauda, I thought the best tribute I could do would be to paint his last WDC winning helmet that he used to take his McLaren to the title in 1984. Lauda won a total of 3 world drivers championships in his career, and became a legend of the sport after making an incredible comeback from a fiery crash at the 1976 German Grand Prix that almost killed him. Just 6 weeks later Lauda was back in the car fighting for the title once more. At the end of his career Lauda was an advisor to the Mercedes F1 team, helping them to achieve one of the most successful winning streaks in the sports history after reportedly negotiating Lewis Hamiltons move from McLaren.
