Lauda: MotoGP better than F1

Date published: August 17 2015

Niki Lauda has praised MotoGP for offering the "most incredible racing you can see" while Formula 1 is the "opposite."

The triple World Champion recently had a taste of MotoGP as he headed to the Czech Republic to watch Jorge Lorenzo beat Marc Marquez.

Despite the Yamaha rider claiming a dominant victory over the reigning Champ, Lauda was impressed by the standard of racing.

In fact he reckons it is a better show that what F1 currently offers.

"Racing bikes is the most incredible racing you can see today, because you can see how the rider struggles with his bike," he told El Mundo Deportivo.

"In F1 unfortunately the opposite happens: the cars are very easy to drive, they don't even slide."
