• Widely regarded as best driver never to win F1 world title
• Went on to be a successful broadcaster and businessman
Sir Stirling Moss, the much-loved and respected racing driver, has died at the age of 90 after a long illness.
Born in London in 1929, Moss was widely acknowledged as one of the greatest drivers never to have won the Formula One world title, although he was runner-up on four occasions. He was hugely admired for his skill behind the wheel in many disciplines, having a remarkably successful career in sportscar racing at the same time as F1. He retired from top-level competition after a crash in 1962 but continued in historic racing and was highly active within motor racing for the rest of his life. In 1961 he was named the BBC’s sports personality of the year.
