FORMULA ONE GREAT Sir Stirling Moss is in intensive care after a three-storey fall at his home in London.

The 80-year-old Briton, who won 16 grands prix, is not in a life-threatening condition but has broken ankles, feet and vertebrae damage.

The Daily Mail newspaper reported that, with the lift in his house malfunctioning and remaining at the fourth floor, Moss stepped into the shaft on the third floor and fell to the concrete base.

"Amazingly he did not suffer any internal injuries," confirmed British Racing Drivers' Club secretary Stuart Pringle, who said Moss has been operated on.

"Lady (Susan) Moss has just telephoned me and although Sir Stirling is not in good shape, he is no longer in danger," he added.

Vettel Names RB26 'Luscious Liz'

SEBASTIAN VETTEL HAS named his new RB6 formula one car 'Luscious Liz'.

The 22-year-old German and 2009 championship runner-up famously called last year's Red Bull 'Kate's Dirty Sister' -- because it was faster and more aggressive than its predecessor 'Kate'.

His 2008 Toro Rosso was called Julie.

Giving his cars a female name, emblazoned on the 'dashboard' of the single seater, is now one of Vettel's several F1-related superstitions.

Vettel religiously steps into his cars and dismounts from the left-hand side, and slides a lucky coin behind the laces of his boot.

"If I could design a superstar, Sebastian would be the result," F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone writes in the latest edition of Auto Bild Motorsport.

"He is exactly what formula one needs: a young, super-talented driver who is intelligent but not arrogant, popular with the public and good with the media, normal but still very professional," added the 79-year-old.
