The world says farewell to a Formula 1 legend.

He was the racers' racer, a gentleman from an era few current drivers would tolerate.

Every single time Sir Stirling Moss raced; his life was in danger.

The fact that that he survived his years on the track is undoubtedly no more than luck. That luck also left him many times as he failed to claim the World Championship, despite being the fastest driver for several of his years in Formula One.

Instead, with 16 victories, Moss is remembered as the greatest driver never to win a World Championship.

Following a horrific crash at Goodwood in 1962, that left him in a coma for four months, he retired from F1. Moss would go on to race at Bathurst alongside Jack Brabham, and here in New Zealand where he teamed up with Denny Hulme in the Colin Giltrap Racing VW Golf GTI.

Moss passed away aged 90, following a long illness. His widow, Lady Moss, said, "It was one lap too many, he just closed his eyes."
