Item description for F1 Legends: Stirling Moss (Formula 1 Legends Series) by Pierre Menard, Jacques Vassal & Eric Silbermann...
For a dozen years, from 1950 to 1962, Stirling Moss was, alongside Fangio and later out on his own, the greatest driver of his day. He was the reference point in terms of driving skill, determination, pure speed and adaptability. He had 529 starts to his name, winning 212 times, in Formula 1 of course, but also in Sports cars, GT and Touring Cars, behind the wheel of around 100 different types of car. Starting with Formula 3 Coopers, he drove HWM, Maserati, Mercedes, Vanwall, BRM, Cooper and Lotus, all with the same easy style. However, the World Championship which he deserved more than most, escaped him several times, notably in 1958, at the end of an extraordinary season. He won 16 Grands Prix from 66 starts and took many victories against the best factory teams in non-championship events, which were very popular at the time. He also won the Coupe des Alpes rally and many endurance races with Jaguar, Mercedes, Maserati, Aston Martin and with Ferrari he was victorious in the Mille Miglia, the Tourist Trophy and the Nurburgring 1000 Kilometres, against other Formula 1 stars. Having been one of the first drivers who could be considered as a true professional, Moss, who was knighted in 2000, is still a familiar figure in historic racing and is famous on a world scale. This book contains several original eye-witness accounts and exclusive comments from Moss himself, as well as original illustrations.
