The outpouring of tributes following the death of Sir Stirling Moss shows how beloved he was, but what made him so great a racing driver?
Richard Williams and Mark Hughes join Edd Straw in the latest edition of The Race F1 Podcast to reflect on Moss’s remarkable career and the reasons why, almost 60 years after his frontline racing career came to a sudden halt, his loss is so resonant.
Moss’s early impact by winning the 1950 Tourist Trophy and his success with Maserati machinery that led to his big break with Mercedes is discussed in-depth.
His subsequent triumphs with Rob Walker-run machinery and some of his greatest races are also delved into.
There’s also a look at how Moss’s ability meant he was able to transition from 2.5-litre grand prix cars into the 1.5-litre machinery so effectively.
