After joining Mercedes in 1955, Moss began his most successful period in the sport, taking race wins and podium finishes for various teams.
From 1955 to 1958, Moss ended the championship second in the standings. while his final three years in F1, from 1959 to 1961, he ended up third.
Moss also won a series of non-championship races as was triumphant at the 1954 12 Hours of Sebring alongside Bill Lloyd.
After his F1 career, Moss would spend the remaining decades competing in historical races as well as certain professional events.
Moss retired from public life in January 2018 after he fell ill with a serious chest infection in Singapore.
During the early hours of the morning of April 12th, he passed away, with his wife Lady Susie Moss by his side.
