NIKI’S NIGHT: Lauda lights up San Roque

Three-times Formula 1 winner Lauda, the only driver to win with Ferrari and McLaren, took to the roulette wheel after answering questions about his sport.

San Roque mayor Juan Carlos Ruiz Boix and other political dignitaries watched him cut the red ribbon on the new 10,000-meter-square casino.

“Technology and mechanics are changing the style of F-1 driving,” said Lauda, who was badly burned in a 1976 crash.

“Perhaps technology has advanced too much and this is harming the instinct and daring of the drivers.”
