Niki Lauda, the former three time world champion who still attends Grand Prix as a media commentator, recently got married : -

ImageAccording to the German newspaper Bild, the 59-year-old Austrian's marriage to 29-year-old Birgit, in a civil ceremony, took just seven minutes.

Bild said Birgit Wetzinger donated a kidney to the former racing driver and aviation entrepreneur three years ago.

They met when Birgit was an air hostess with one of his airlines.

"It's true," Lauda said when asked for confirmation of his new wedding status.

"I try to keep my private life to myself, so I don't want to say anything more about it."

About Birgit, however, he said: "Without her I would not be alive today."
