London - British Formula 1 driving great Stirling Moss remained hospitalised in Singapore on Saturday, almost a month after being admitted with a serious chest infection, a statement on his website revealed.
The 87-year-old, winner of 16 Grands Prix and four times a runner-up in the world title race, was taken to hospital on December 22 having travelled out to Singapore to start a cruise with his wife.
The statement read: "Sir Stirling was admitted to hospital in Singapore on 22nd December 2016 with a serious 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."
Moss, who has been described as the best driver never to win the world title, is hoping to enjoy several days holiday after he leaves hospital.
The statement adds: "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, whilst lying in the sun by a gorgeous swimming pool."
