He underwent a lung transplant in August, but "passed away peacefully" on Monday 20 May, his family said.
"His unique achievements as an athlete and entrepreneur are and will remain unforgettable, his tireless zest for action, his straightforwardness and his courage remain".
"Niki will always remain one of the greatest legends of our sport - he combined heroism, humanity and honesty inside and outside the cockpit", said the 47-year-old Austrian. "A role model and a benchmark for all of us, he was a loving and caring husband, father and grandfather away from the public, and he will be missed". 1974 saw the Austrian take his first podiums, race wins and pole positions, and the stage was set for a real assault on the crown, which came in 1975 as he secured his place in the history books.
Lauda, a triple world champion regarded as one of the sport's all-time greats, was non-executive chairman of the Mercedes team when he died on Monday night at the age of 70. He was an exceptionally talented racing driver and a real inspiration as a businessman. But Lauda would go on to compete at the top beyond that rivalry and in 1977 he became world champion with Ferrari once again. Suffering severe burns and severely damaging his lungs trapped in the fumes, he was pulled from the auto but lapsed into a coma soon after. After his tremendous accident, he was back just six weeks later.
With James Hunt resurgent Lauda could still have taken the title at the final round in Japan but opted to retire from the race convinced the torrential rain made it unsafe. Hunt, with whom he enjoyed both respect and friendship, took the championship. He briefly returned to racing following an offer from McLaren, winning the F1 championship for a third time in 1984, before retiring the following year.
The teams Lauda raced for also joined in the tributes, with McLaren describing him as a "giant of our sport" who will be "enshrined" in the company's history. He retired from racing the following yearMike Powell/AllsportLauda's last race victory was the Dutch Grand Prix in 1985. He was as vital a component in F1 in the latter part of his life as he had been during his driving heyday.
