Very sad to hear the news of Stirling’s passing today. One of the greatest drivers of all time and undoubtedly would have been a very worthy World Champion. He was one of the great characters of the sport with tremendous wit and always a twinkle in his eye. We will miss you but i’m grateful to have known you Stirling. Our thoughts are with Susie and his family – RIP legend
Mercedes shared a video tribute too:
Here’s a video from F1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ea3iZKLduvg
Speaking on the death of Sir Stirling Moss, Mercedes F1 chief Toto Wolff stated: Sir Stirling was a larger-than-life figure in our sport and one of the survivors of an age when motor racing was about danger, bravery and camaraderie.
“But most of all, Stirling’s career was characterised by an impeccable sportsmanship and in this he truly set himself apart. He was a great figure in the history of Mercedes, both as a Grand Prix driver and the winner of the 1955 Mille Miglia.
“It is no exaggeration to say that we will never see his like again. Our deepest condolences go to his wife Lady Susie, his family and his friends. Godspeed to a true racer.” At the same time, Piero Ferrari relayed his sentiments too:
“Stirling Moss symbolised motor sport. He was a true personality who left an indelible impression on the history of racing. His versatility meant he was able to win in so many different categories, from F1 to sports car endurance races.
“He also produced incredible performances in road races such as the Mille Miglia, setting a record that was never beaten. Despite not winning the F1 World Championship, he is most definitely a legendary figure and he was a fearsome and formidable rival of Ferrari in Formula 1 and many other categories.
“His and Ferrari’s paths were about to merge when he had the accident at Goodwood in April 1962 that effectively ended his racing career, at least at a high level. At the time, in Maranello we were preparing a 250 SWB for him in British Racing Green, along with a contract to drive for us, but fate decreed otherwise.
“My father said that Stirling reminded him of Tazio Nuvolari, because of his love of racing in any type of car, something which stayed with him right to the very end of his career.”
