One of the true greats of Formula 1, Sir Stirling Moss, has died at the age of 90.

Often referred to as the greatest driver never to win the world championship, Moss contested 66 Grands Prix from 1951 to 1961, driving for the likes of Vanwall, Maserati and Mercedes, where he famously formed a contented and ruthlessly effective partnership with lead driver Juan Manuel Fangio.

In that 10-year career, Moss took 16 wins, some of which rank among the most iconic drives in the sport’s history – his 1961 victories in Monaco and Germany in particular often held up as all-time classics.

Moss was also a highly regarded sports car driver, famously winning the 1955 Mille Miglia on public roads for Mercedes at an average speed of close to 100 mph, while he also competed in rallies and land-speed attempts.
