Niki Lauda: “People always think of us as rivals, but James was among the very few I liked and even fewer that I respected”

British 1976 World Champion James Hunt, beer in hand, salutes the crowd after winning the 1977 United States Grand Prix at Watkins Glen. Talented McLaren driver James Hunt was one of the most complicated, charismatic and controversial individuals ever to compete in Formula One. He loved projecting his playboy image to the hilt and backed it up with outrageous statements.

"Niki will talk technical to people, but I have a different view of GP racing. I think it is really about is getting in the car and putting your foot down. Obviously, the driver has to have a hand in setting the car up, but you don’t have to get involved in a whole load of technicalities. When reporters come up to me and ask why I adjusted the front roll bar by 1.5 centimeters, I probably don’t even know it’s been done." - James Hunt
