Well said Richard. I just watched the program as well. Lauda's accident is what made me aware of F1 as a 5 year old nipper.
I've always felt that it was a joke to call it a great rivalry, Lauda was head and shoulders above Hunt. Hunt got close to Lauda for one season thanks only to Niki's adversity. I hadn't realised that Niki had also suffered broken ribs earlier in the season.
1 point in it after, broken ribs, 5 weeks out after an almost fatal accident and retiring due to safety reasons in Japan. Niki was in a different league to Hunt.
