Former Formula 1 champion Niki Lauda undergoes lung transplant

Niki Lauda won the Formula One title in 1975 1977 and 1984

"During the following days his condition has further improved continuously and all organs are functioning well".

Lauda is also very active in aviation - in January he bought back his old airline Niki, renaming it LaudaMotion but going on to sell a majority stake to Irish low-priced operator Ryanair two months later.

AKH's head of thoracic surgery Professor Walter Klepetko, who led the surgeon in Lauda's operation, said they are "very satisfied" with the 69-year-old's condition.

Mercedes F1 boss Toto Wolff hopes Niki Lauda will be back at the racetrack in a short time.

The F1 world was in shock last week when it emerged that the Mercedes team chairman had a lung transplant and was in a coma. He won his titles with Ferrari and McLaren in 1975, 1977 and 1984.

"The world knows Niki as an F1 legend with incredible power and resilience".

Caitlyn Jenner Wants to Play a Villain in a Marvel Film
She did say he's made "mistakes" on LGBTQ issues while arguing, "I don't support him in everything that he does". Caitlyn Jenner was in attendance at the ESPYS this year alongside Sophia Hutchins, her rumored girlfriend.

"The recovery he faces is not a race".

"Sending you all my love, prayers and support, Niki".

"We wish him a safe and speedy recovery - in that order - and send all our positive energy to him and his family".

Lauda was severely burned in an accident at the 1976 German Grand Prix and had fluid vacuumed from his lungs so he could return to racing in just six weeks, an event chronicled in the Ron Howard-directed film "Rush", which stared Daniel Brühl as Lauda.

Four-time champion Lewis Hamilton also took to Instagram to wish Lauda well.
