The funeral for Formula 1 legend Niki Lauda got underway in Vienna on Wednesday, with friends, family and fans of the Austrian racing legend in attendance.

Lauda, who won three F1 titles in 1975, 1977 and 1984, died in hospital last week after undergoing a lung transplant.

He was 70 years old.

A rainy start to the day in the Austrian capital didn’t prevent fans from paying their last respects to the motor racing icon as hundreds of mourners stood with umbrellas outside St Stephen’s Cathedral ahead of a private funeral.

After Lauda’s coffin was carried into the cathedral to lie in state, his son Lukas was pictured placing his father’s helmet on top.
