1Jean Todt's system will never succeed, not even with Michael Schumacher
2Giving up is something a Lauda doesn't do.
3Running an airline is a normal job. Racing is more.
4The crucial point is always the own cost structure. Therefore I created a Low Cost alliance with air Berlin.
5Happiness is an enemy. It weakens you. Suddenly, you have something to lose.
6Airlines go in the long run at the competition to reason. For the passenger the competition is good, because each competitor tries to undercut the other one.
7In Germany air became generally accepted Berlin in this area. It operated with 45 airplanes within the Low Cost range from Germany, and is one the most successful carriers in Europe.
8Vienna is the gate to Eastern Europe.
9I want to bring passengers on my airplanes to present to them my product.
10I employ 20 people in Vienna. The other 130 coworkers are pilots and flight companions. The Overhead is limited with me. Reduces naturally the costs of my fliers.
11I've been through a lot and I realize the future can't be controlled. I'm not worried. You can always learn to overcome difficulties.

14This aircraft tops everything. All the others look old as compared to this one.
15A lot of people criticize Formula 1 as an unnecessary risk. But what would life be like if we only did what is necessary?
16There are more important things in life than the world championship, like staying alive.
17I always go extreme ways.
18[re his injuries after famous 1976 accident] At the time I was upset by how people reacted. They wouldn't look me in the eye, which I thought was rude. But I have to say I was startled by the movie and I understand now. [Rival racer James] Hunt used to say to me: 'Niki, you're lucky. Some people are just born ugly, but you have the excuse of an accident.'
19[re making of Rush (2013)] I had been approached before, but the ideas always seemed to me boring. Peter Morgan and Ron Howard - these are the right people. Ron Howard had no idea about racing. He was like a little kid, with unbelievable enthusiasm. But the story comes very well across.
