Stirling Moss: "o que eu teria feito diferente"

Stirling MossDe 1948 a 1962, Stirling Moss competiu em 527 corridas, chegando ao final em 375, vencendo 212, sendo 16 delas na Fórmula 1. Sir Stirling, de 83 anos, falou à revista americana Car And Driver sobre o automobilismo na época do seu auge e agora.

O senhor competiu em uma vintage race em Lime Rock, onde alguns veículos que surgiram na sua época estiveram presentes. Estás surpreso pelo fato de que corridas de carros antigos terem se tornado tão populares?

Estou muito orgulhoso disso. Hoje, esses carros valem muito mais do que quando novos. Um Maserati, quando saía da fábrica, não chegava nem perto de como ficou depois de alguns anos de restauração. Uma coisa que me deixa perplexo é que essas pessoas que guiam estes carros hoje sabem que correm o mesmo perigo que nós presenciávamos há mais de cinquenta anos.

Sir Stirling Moss OBE announces his retirement from motor racing

The door has been closed on a competitive racing career that has spanned more than 60 years. During qualifying for the Le Mans Legends race, Sir Stirling Moss OBE, made the decision to retire from the sport he loves.

On his retirement Stirling said "This afternoon I scared myself and I have always said that if I felt I was not up to it or that I was getting in the way of fellow competitors, then I would retire".

He leaves motor racing as one of the most recognised racing drivers in the world, having raced from the age of 18, winning the British Grand Prix twice, the Monaco Grand Prix three times, the Mille Miglia, the Targa Florio and the Tourist Trophy, as well as countless other races, during his professional career.

He then went onto compete in historic racing. As patron of Goodwood, he has helped make the Goodwood Revival and historic racing around the world hugely popular.

He is regarded as one of the greatest motor racing drivers the sport has ever known, having raced successfully in all forms of motor sport and racing not only to win, but racing because he loved the racing itself.

As Stirling said, on the day of his retirement, "I love racing, but now it is time to stop".
