It's August 1st, 1976, the second lap of German Grand Prix at the Nürburgring when Niki Lauda's Ferrari 312T2 burst into flames and he came close to death after inhaling hot toxic fumes and suffering severe burns.

At this time Niki Lauda was F1 World Drivers' Champion in 1975 and leading the championship battle in 1976. Using previously unseen footage, Lauda: The Untold Story explains what happened on that fateful, and near fatal day at the Nurburgring, then follows Lauda's courageous journey to recovery culminating in a miraculous comeback in Monza only 6 weeks later and he lost that year's title – by just one point – to James Hunt.

The film also investigates the impact that Niki Lauda's crash had not just on his own life but on the sport as a whole, looking at the safety developments from the 1900s to the present day. Featuring exclusive access to Mercedes HQ and interviews with Lauda, his family, and motor-sport legends past and present including Sir Jackie Stewart, David Coulthard, Marc Webber, Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, Hans-Joachim Stuck and Jochen Mass.
