Former Formula One driver Sir Stirling Moss is recovering in hospital in Singapore following a serious chest infection.
Moss is arguably the best Grand Prix driver to never win a the world championship. A statement on his website read:
Sir Stirling was admitted to hospital in Singapore on 22nd December 2016 with a severe chest infection. Because of the severity of the infection it resulted in some complications and his recovery has not been as speedy as was expected or wished. However, his condition continues to improve and his doctors now consider him to be stable. In himself, Sir Stirling is in good spirits and only upset about having missed his Christmas cruise with friends. The hospital in Singapore is second to none and consultants, doctors, nurses, therapists and staff looking after him could not be more wonderful; as kind and caring as they are professional. Lady Moss says she could not wish for a better facility or a more qualified team. She is very grateful to them all. Once he is discharged from the hospital, it is Sir Stirling and Lady Moss’s hope to stay in Singapore to enjoy a few days recuperating at a lovely hotel, being thoroughly spoilt, while lying in the sun by a gorgeous swimming pool. A little something for them to make up for the cruise they missed and the bonus of escaping from the English winter a little while longer.
