Tributes have poured in for Sir Stirling Moss, who has passed away at the age of ninety, with the motorsport world coming together to remember a legend that was a superstar in anything he drove.

Moss, who finished second in the World Championship in four consecutive seasons between 1955 and 1958 before adding a trio of third places between 1959 and 1961 before a heavy crash at Goodwood on Easter Monday in 1962 ended his Formula 1 career.

He was also competitive at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, twice finishing as runner-up, while he twice was a victor in the 12 Hours of Sebring and once at the 12 Hours of Reims.  He also took a super victory in the 1955 Mille Miglia in a record time, a time that remains etched in history after the race was discontinued just two years later.

Many tributes have been paid to the Briton on social media, including from reigning Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton.
