So the first time Niki called me was very early in the morning and he said, “Yes, I guess we have to meet now” (Brühl puts on his Lauda accent) and I said “Yes, that would be great,” and he said “Just bring hand luggage to Vienna.”

I went to Vienna with my little tiny handbag and after five minutes I felt better because I saw a smile on his face and I realized, “Okay, I think the guy likes me and likes the idea of me playing him.”
