Sir Stirling Moss says talk of Formula One racing through the streets of London is - and has been for a long time - nothing more than a "dream."
On Thursday a proposal to host a Formula One grand prix in London was put before the media gathered at the Royal Automobile Club in Pall Mall.
The planned route, which was backed by Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button and McLaren sponsor Santander, will see the drivers race past iconic landmarks such as Buckingham Palace and Trafalgar Square.
Such is his desire for this race to become a reality that F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone will reportedly waive the £30-35million cost of staging a Formula One.
"With the way things are maybe we would front it and put the money up for it," said the 81-year-old. "It would be fantastic, good for London, good for England - a lot better than the Olympics."
But while Ecclestone is dreaming the dream, Sir Stirling Moss says it is just that, a dream.
"I'd love to see it but they have been talking about it since I was racing in the 1960s," Moss told the Daily Mail.
"It's a wonderful dream."
