I never knew that story... damn good sportsman, and I agree with this "n modern F1 racing, the complicated rules have become yet another weapon teams deploy in their battles, and camaraderie on track often gives way to vicious, sometimes personal, grudges. It's all but impossible to imagine another racer doing today what Moss did in 1958, despite that time has made it a singular point of pride for him. "It gives me my exclusivity," Moss told The Telegraph in 2012, "and makes me different, so it's been a bonus. When I lost it to Mike I did feel bad, because I reckon I was quicker. By the second year, though, I thought it doesn't really matter, provided I had the respect of other drivers."

Good choice putting $4,000 rims on your 1990 Honda Civic. That's like Betty White going out and getting her tits done.
