Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton has lauded the impact Niki Lauda had on his impressive career on the one-year anniversary of the Austrian's passing.

Hamilton and Lauda forged a great relationship over the years and Lauda played a huge part in bringing the now six-time World Champion to Mercedes in the first place.

Lauda was a colossus figure in Formula 1 and is dearly missed by everyone, and Hamilton only has the greatest memories of one of sport's biggest icons.
