During the Monaco Grand Prix de F1, which takes place this weekend, the highest category pays tribute to the Austrian Niki Lauda, three-time champion of the category who passed away on Monday.
A spokesperson for F.1 said a tribute is in the works, but details have yet to be confirmed. Others said a minute's silence is planned before the race.
"The loss of Niki is of great importance to F.1", said Ross Brawn, category general manager and who worked with Lauda at Mercedes in 2012. "His presence in the paddock was a reminder that the F.1 is a sport of heroes, a stage for competitors who exceed the common limits of strength and endurance (…) It was just a legend."
En Mercedes, a team of which Lauda was non-executive chairman and shareholder, all its members appeared in the Monte Carlo paddock with black armbands and, in addition, the cars show on their noses the inscription "Danke Niki" (Thanks Niki) and your signature in red.
Ferrari it also honors Lauda, who won two of his titles with the Italian team in the 1970s and returned to the slopes after suffering severe burns from a near-fatal accident in 1976 while competing. In his case, the Austrian's name stands out on the pontoons of his vehicles.
McLaren, the team with which the Austrian won his third title in 1984, was another of the teams that joined the promises of paying a tribute to Lauda in their cars.
