    Absolutely.

    A life lived well.

    Niki kindly (!) flew me to Vienna back in the 90's....I was flying Lauda Air and was chuffed when Niki announced himself as captain for the flight.

    Further information re. McLaren's Indy debacle....

    "Among the myriad problems that afflicted them was the fallout from a decision early in the programme to build their own steering wheel. These house electronic read-outs and several controls for the car, and most Indycar teams buy them in from British company Cosworth.

    When McLaren realised they had run out of time to do their own before starting testing, they ordered one from Cosworth, but when it arrived it did not have any gear-change paddles. When McLaren asked why, they were told they had not ordered them."

    Very embarrassing for McLaren.

    And Red Bull is going on with Honda very well...McLaren is dancing on too many parties around the world.
