all of a sudden they are niki lauda!
my only claim to fame:
I was in Austria with some mates in a hire car (an Astra diesel
) going along the motorway in some pretty atrocious weather. Up ahead we could see this sky blue Ferrari so we thought we'd catch up with it to have a gander. Took some catching, remember it's an Astra diesel, it's pouring with rain and this Ferrari's doing over 90mph (so I guess I must have been doing the ton to catch up
), we pull alongside this Ferrari and guess who's driving? Niki Lauda. Burned ears, baseball cap and all. We're all leaping around in the car of course (as much as we can!), he can see us mouthing "It's Niki Lauda!" to each other and tips us a nod of acknowledgement before he allows me to overtake him. He left the motorway shortly after.
Not everyday you get to overtake Niki Lauda
Hope he didn't think *we* were dickheads
