    He never won the Formula One championship.
    He was once pulled over for speeding and asked by the police officer, 'Who do you think you are, Stirling Moss?'
    He was fined £50 and had his drivers license suspended for a year after he collided with a van while passing a car (1960).
    Talking about a possible film biography, he said he would not want 'a poofter or anything like that' playing him on screen (2013).
    He declared that women 'lacked the mental aptitude' for Formula One racing (2013).
    He was an excellent horse rider and jumper and made the down payment on his first race car with money he earned show jumping.
    He is often called the best Formula One driver to never win the championship.
    He lost the 1958 championship to Mike Hawthorn by a single point.
    During that racing season, Moss had successfully defended Hawthorn before officials at the Portuguese Grand Prix, preventing Hawthorn from being disqualified.
    He said, 'To me, the idea of driving for points goes against the whole point of racing.... If you're not trying to win at all costs, what on earth are you doing there?'
    He ended his competitive racing career after a crash at Goodwood Circuit put him in a coma for a month and left the left side of his body partially paralyzed for six months (1962).
