Although Lauda was expected to attend the Formula 1 season finale, he decided not to travel to Abu Dhabi and instead delivered this message on Twitter: “Message to my team and my friends.”

“As you all know I had a rough time from my health point of view and the support I got from all you people on my way was unbelievable, and I was out of bed quicker because I felt [good] to be home with big strong family and friends.”

“Therefore the achievement of this year, outstanding. Five championships in a row, Lewis again, Bottas right there. We could not have done a better job.”
