Lauding Lauda aloud


I am writing to express the sheer delight I experienced watching Niki Lauda conduct the post-race interview at the German Grand Prix. It was especially enjoyable watching him make Sebastian Vettel squirm when asking him about his illegal pass on Jenson Button. Sebastian did his best to display his innocent schoolboy look while saying that he couldn’t see Button (he’s said that before), but Niki was clearly having none of it and was ready to skewer him. His smile as he asked Vettel and then Button about the incident was absolutely priceless, and I’m sure I wasn’t alone in wanting the questioning to continue. Is there any possibility that Motor Sport could start a campaign to get Niki elected as the official FIA post-race interviewer? If so, count me in. Vote for Niki!
