Published

“I accept every time I get in my car there’s 20 per cent chance I could die. What kind of person does a job like this? Each year two of us die.”

That was the famous line spoken by actor Daniel Bruhl, who played Niki Lauda opposite Chris Hemsworth’s James Hunt in the 2013 film ‘Rush’.

And while those statistics are not strictly accurate, Lauda — who sadly passed away on Tuesday morning (AEST) — knew the harsh reality better than anyone.

Silverstone MotoGP 2019, Alex Rins, Marc Marquez finish video, Andrea Dovizioso crash video

Alex Rins had a day to remember as he defeated Marc Marquez on the line to win the British Grand Prix, but confusion nearly cost the Suzuki rider a second premier class win.

Rins and Marquez were locked in battle at Silverstone in a race that was decided by a mere 0.013s, with the former sneaking inside the championship leader exiting the final corner on the final lap.

However, Rins admitted his “very big mistake” in losing track of the laps in the race, which left him guessing until the chequered flag flew.

Silverstone MotoGP 2019, crash video, Andrea Dovizioso, Fabio Quartararo

Andrea Dovizioso and Fabio Quartararo have both escaped serious injury after being hospitalised following their shocking Lap 1 crash at Silverstone.

While the race was memorable for the last-gasp finish between Alex Rins and Marc Marquez, it began with high drama as Quartararo fell and wiped out Dovizioso at the high speed Copse corner.

Quartararo highsided exiting the first corner of the race and Dovizioso had nowhere to go, the Ducati rider flying off Quartararo’s Yamaha and landing heavily in the run-off area.

McLaughlin took his 16th win of 2019 at the OTR SuperSprint on Sunday, and drew level with the record set by Lowndes 23 years ago.
