Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Sir Stir­ling Moss was still re­cov­er­ing in a hos­pi­tal in Sin­ga­pore as Motorsport News closed for press after suf­fer­ing a se­ri­ous chest in­fec­tion.

Moss, 87, was first ad­mit­ted to hos­pi­tal on De­cem­ber 22 suf­fer­ing from the in­fec­tion and his of­fice said that com­pli­ca­tions had meant that his “re­cov­ery has not been as speedy as was ex­pected or wished”.

Moss fin­ished as run­ner up four times in the For­mula 1 World Cham­pi­onship and won 16 grands prix. His achieve­ments in for­mula and sportscars have marked him out as one of the finest driv­ers of his gen­er­a­tion.

A state­ment from his of­fice said: “Sir Stir­ling’s con­di­tion con­tin­ues to im­prove and his doc­tors now con­sider him sta­ble. He is in good spir­its and the hos­pi­tal is sec­ond to none and the con­sul­tants, doc­tors, nurses and staff look­ing after him could not be more won­der­ful.”

Moss is ex­pected to re­main in Sin­ga­pore for re­cu­per­a­tion after be­ing dis­charged be­fore head­ing back to the UK.
