British Formula One legend Sir Stirling Moss has died at the age of 90.
His wife Lady Moss confirmed the news and said he died peacefully at his London home following a long illness.
"It was one lap too many," she said. "He just closed his eyes."
Commentator and former F1 driver Martin Brundle said on Twitter: "RIP Sir Stirling Moss. A mighty racer and gentleman.
"He had a press on style on the track and in life. Remarkable man. Survived the most dangerous era of motorsport and died today aged 90. He had such great stories to tell, and it was a privilege to know him."
Johnny Herbert added on his account: "Sad sad news that legend Sir Stirling Moss has passed. World Champion in all our eyes."
Though Moss famously never won the Formula One title, he finished runner-up four times and came third three times in a career during which he won 16 Grands Prix.
