Nicky Lloda: Formula One's three champions die on 70
Three-time Formula One champion Nicky Lodha, who was overcome by a fatal accident to become the best racing driver, passed away at 70 years of age.

Austrian, who left a runway after starting a new career as an airline entrepreneur, died peacefully on Monday, his family said in a statement to CNN.
Lauda was admitted to the hospital with influenza at the beginning of this year and last year lung transplantation was done.
The Louda family said, "As an athlete and entrepreneur, his unique achievements and will remain in our memory." "His tireless zeal, his openness and his courage for action remained an ideal and standard for all of us, far away from the public, he was a loving, affectionate husband, father, and grandfather.
Lauda won the F1 title with Ferrari and McLaren in 1975, 1977 and 1984, and two wins of this victory came after him who nearly took his life.

Born in a wealthy family in Vienna, he was expected to lead the industry for his father's upbringing. Instead, he entered the motorsport and joined Ferrari in 1974.
In the 1976 German Grand Prix, Luda collided with a hurdle and his car caught fire. They breathed poisonous smoke and feared terrible burning, which left them with death and with permanent face marks.
However, he returned to the race only after six weeks.
Loda's rivalry with the 1976 race and the British F1 driver James Hunt was the subject of the acclaimed 2013 film "Rush" in which Australian actor Chris Hemsworth had acted.

In a 2016 interview with CNN, Lodha warned that due to the introduction of a lot of security measures, Formula One would be harmed.
"Why are we looking?" Lauda said. "Good racing, a little danger, it is always, and an incredible driver demonstrates to keep these cars under control."
"My opinion is that if we think only about 110% of the security problems, then we will destroy Formula One."
Outside the race, Loda established three Austrian airlines: Luda Air, Fly Nicky, and Loudmishan. He also worked as a non-executive president of the Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix.
The McLaren F1 team said that he was deeply hurt by the news of his death.
The team wrote on Tuesday, "Nicky will always be in our hearts and will be involved in our history."
