One of the greatest legends of the global motorsport, Sir Stirling Moss, has died on Easter at the age of 90. He was considered as the greatest driver never to win the world championship.

Moss contested 66 Formula One Grands Prix from 1951 to 1961, driving for many different manufacturers, including HWM, ERA, Cooper, Vanwall, Maserati, Mercedes and Lotus. In that 10-year F1 career, Moss took 16 victories, finishing as F1 vice-champion four times in a row from 1955 to 1958.

Moss was also a highly regarded sports car driver, participating ten times at 24 Hours of Le Mans and finishing two times on the podium, being second in 1953 with Jaguar and second in 1956 with Aston Martin. His most famous sports car victory was at the 1955 Mille Miglia with Mercedes.

Moss retired from professional racing after a major crash at Goodwood in 1962 but maintained a presence in motorsport events until January 2018 when he retired from public life.
