Niki Lauda admitted to hospital with flu five months after lung transplant
• Triple F1 world champion had life-saving operation in August
• Mercedes’ non-executive chairman missed part of last season
The three-times Formula One world champion Niki Lauda has been admitted to hospital with flu just five months after a lung transplant.
Lauda, 69, underwent the life-saving operation in August before he was released for rehabilitation nearly four months later. He has been in his role as Mercedes’ non-executive chairman since 2012 but his poor health meant he missed the second half of last season.
