Doctor satisfied with Lauda condition
Niki Lauda looks to be on the road to recovery.
The F1 world was in shock last week when it emerged that the Mercedes team chairman had a lung transplant and was in a coma.
But his doctor, Dr Walter Klepetko, told Bild newspaper that the 69-year-old F1 legend is now awake, in a stable condition, and with his respirator switched off.
He said the new lung is working well.
"We are very, very satisfied with this development," Klepetko said.
"It's hard to imagine a stronger fighter than Niki," he added.
