Stirling Moss on Murray Walkers F1 Greats
Sir Stirling Moss OBE is arguably the greatest all-round racing driver of
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
Miglia, at an average speed of 97.9mph over the 1,000 miles raced, the
Targa Florio and the Tourist Trophy at Goodwood.

(25) and achieved more Grand Prix pole positions (33) than any other
driver. He also competed in the Indianapolis 500 five times, and won it
once, in 1965.

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.
