On May 20 2019, the world mourned the loss of three-time world champion Niki Lauda, and exactly a year on, we decided the best way to honour the great man was to remember some of his finest performances behind the wheel.

So in the video above we have highlights of two of his best races for you: the 1984 Portuguese Grand Prix and the 1985 Dutch Grand Prix.
