Motor racing legend Sir Stirling Moss has landed himself slap bang in the middle of a sexism row after saying he thought women weren't up to the task of professionally racing a Formula 1 car.

Sir Stirling admitted that women could handle the physical demands of piloting an F1 car but said he didn't know whether "they've got the mental aptitude to race hard, wheel to wheel."
