How old was F1 star Stirling Moss when he died & what was his cause of death?

Moss died aged 90 in April 2020 with his beloved wife at his bedside after she nursed him through a long illness.

She added: "It was one lap too many. He just closed his eyes."

Though he 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.
