Lauda to receive Ecclestone award
3 September 2013 – Three-time Formula 1 World Champion Niki Lauda will be presented with the 2013 'Bernie Ecclestone Award' ahead of this weekend's Italian Grand Prix at Monza.
The prize came to life in 2011 when Alberto Bombassei, Chairman of brake supplier Brembo, recognised Ecclestone for his entrepreneurial efforts. The following year, the F1 supremo opted to reward other personalities in conjunction with the company.
Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo was the first person honoured, with Lauda – who is to receive the trophy on Sunday afternoon – the next name added to the list.
