It's a fitting send off..
Niki Lauda. A proper legend of a bloke.
Now that's a great sporting comeback. On the brink of death, having the last rites read, and yet 40 days later he's back in the car. Must have been hell for him, but he did it and still had a stellar career afterwards. The word legend is used to easily these days, but in Lauda's case, it's entirely appropriate.

There's a track on Paul McCartney & Wings 'Band on the Run' album called Mrs Vandebilt. Not sure if it was meant as some sort of tribute to her?

Unless Paul McCartney is dyslexic of course.
I noticed they were spelt differently and checked online. It appears they ARE different.
