Arnold Schwarzenegger and F1 champ Lewis Hamilton were two of the biggest names at the funeral for Formula 1 racing legend Niki Lauda.

Schwarzenegger led the tributes for Niki at St. Stephen's Cathedral in the racer's home city of Vienna, telling the crowd of mourners, "We all loved and admired Niki," adding, "We admired his courage, his will, his strength, his love."

Hundreds of mourners were in attendance as Niki's wooden coffin including his 38-year-old son Mathias.

Niki died last week at theUniversity Hospital Zurich in Switzerland after finally succumbing to injuries associated from his famous 1976 accident in Germany when he inhaled toxic fumes that damaged his lungs. He underwent a lung transplant 18 months ago, but failed to fully recover and passed away at 70-years-old.
