Stirling Moss on elderly drivers


"I do think a lot of older people should certainly be re-evaluated," explains retired racing driver Sir Stirling Moss.

The 1950s and 60s Formula One star has called for elderly drivers to be tested behind the wheel, arguing that with changing signs, rules and driving etiquette, many elderly drivers are simply not fit to be on the road.

A pioneer for British Formula One, Moss, 79, took part in hundreds of grand prix races during his career with his name becoming synonymous with speed behind the wheel.
