WOMEN are not sufficiently manly to be racing drivers, according to Stirling Moss.
The racing legend believes women lack the craggy good looks, devil-may-care attitude and appreciation of fine whiskey that are essential to racing prowess.
Moss said: “Your average female doesn’t even like big shiny watches will loads of little dials all over them.
“Their idea of a post-match celebration is to make a sponge cake then sit around talking about emotions.
“Imagine the film Le Mans with Audrey Hepburn playing Steve McQueen’s role.
“It would basically be about hats.”
Woman Emma Bradford said: “He’s quite right, I’m unable to do racing car-pointing because I can’t stop making mental to-do lists.
“For example I’d be going round a hairpin bend and ‘Buy Dettol and bananas’ would pop into my mind, causing me to crash.
“So instead I’ve bought the film rights to Stirling’s life and cast Graham Norton in the lead role. The movie will be called Shiny Helmets Racing Up My Behind.”
