Who Came Back From The Dead, following his astonishing recovery from the
fiery accident in the German Grand Prix of 1976 that so nearly killed him.
He is a triple World Champion. The man who advised Ferrari in his
retirement. The man who quit racing to start his own airline, and came back
to win again.

all time and a true icon of the motor racing world.His early career was
meteoric, with works drives for both Jaguar and HWM. 1955 was a seminal
year; he was signed by Mercedes-Benz to partner the legendary World
Champion Juan Manuel Fangio. That year saw Stirling shadow the great
Argentine in most Grands Prix, beating him to win the British GP at
Aintree. Famously in that same year, he also won the incredible Mille
