Who do you think you are? Stirling Moss?

Who do you think you are? Stirling Moss?
In 1951, a young English boy made his debut at the Formula 1 World Championship at the Swiss Grand Prix, where he finished eighth. From then, he raced, and raced, and raced until 1962, when he suffered a very serious accident on the Goodwood circuit. During those years, he won 212 of the 529 races he took part in all kinds of cars and competitions, from Le Mans to F1, F2 or the Mille Miglia... Absolutely genius. He was the driver with the most victories but without ever winning a Formula 1 World Championship, making him one of the champions without a crown. Quite a symbol ("Mr Motor Racing"), not only for his victories, but for his way of racing and the sportsmanship he showed.

Always with a smile on his face, in a calm voice, ready to sign autographs and chat with fans, this motor ace died a few days ago at the age of 90 years. An anecdote that Moss told is that, on more than one occasion when the police made him pull over for going "a little bit too fast", they shouted at him with anger before handing over the documentation or recognizing him: "Who do you think you are? Stirling Moss?" XD

At SpotModel, having had the luck of meeting him in person, we remember him with great affection and dedicate him a warm farewell :)
