Sir Stirling Moss has passed away aged 90

Former Formula 1 driver Sir Stirling Moss has passed away aged 90 after battling with a long term illness.

Regarded by many as the greatest Formula 1 driver never to win the championship title, Moss sadly passed away with his wife, Lady Moss , by his bedside.

"He died as he lived, looking wonderful," Lady Moss told the Daily Mail. "He simply tired in the end and he just closed his beautiful eyes and that was that."

Due to his deteriorating health, Moss had retired from public life in 2018. Previously, the former driver, who had raced for Mercedes, Maserati and Lotus among others, had spent 134-days in hospital after suffering a chest infection whilst holidaying in Singapore in 2016.

Always the racer, Moss continued to race historic cars until reaching the ripe old age of 81, ending his career with an astounding tally of 212 wins from 529 races.
