World of motorsport pays tribute to Sir Stirling Moss

Jamie Woodhouse

The sad passing of racing icon Sir Stirling Moss at age 90 was announced on Easter Sunday by his wife Lady Moss.

Moss was widely regarded as the greatest all-round racer in history – he was never World Champion simply due to his love of British machinery and finished runner-up in four successive seasons between 1955-58.

And following the sad news of his death, the world of motorsport is united in its tribute.

Moss won his first World Championship race with Mercedes at the 1955 British Grand Prix.

Moss’ epic 1961 victory in Monaco came for Lotus when he saw off the more powerful Ferrari of Richie Ginther.
