But I have to say I was startled by the movie and I understand now. [Rival racer James] Hunt used to say to me: 'Niki, you're lucky. Some people are just born ugly, but you have the excuse of an accident.' See more »

Stated in an interview, that a "certain company" pays him over a million Euros a year to have their logo on the hat he wears over his burns, when he's in public. See more »
