CareerEdit

Lauda was born during his father's temporary retirement from F1. Unlike many drivers, who start out in karting, Lauda debuted in 2002 in Formula Nissan 2000. He also drove in two races of German Formula VW and one race of Spanish Formula Three. He moved to World Series Lights in 2003 with the Vergani team, again moving in 2004 to the Euro Formula 3000 Series. Later in 2004 he drove in Formula 3000, completing the full season with the Coloni Motorsport team.

Lauda raced in the 2005 GP2 Series for the Coloni team, alongside former Formula One driver Gianmaria Bruni. He was one of only a few competitors in that initial GP2 season who had a full season of F3000 experience behind them. He also represented A1 Team Austria in the 2005-06 A1 Grand Prix season.

When he had not achieved any major results in single seater racing, Lauda decided to turn his attention to touring cars. From 2006 he competed in the German-based Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters series with Mercedes-Benz, whereas in 2008 and 2009 he dovetailed this with racing in the Speedcar Series.

2012 saw Lauda join Michael Bartels' Vita4One Racing Team in the now-defunct FIA GT1 World Championship, where he finished 12th in the standings with Nikolaus Mayr-Melnhof in a BMW Z4 GT3 (Bartels himself finished 3rd that season). In addition, Lauda was 3rd in the 2012 Spa 24 Hours, again in a Vita4One-entered BMW.

 
Lauda racing in the 2018 6 Hours of Silverstone.
