"The concept, the whole idea, has changed," the British legend, who started winning Grands Prix in the middle of the 50s, said on Austrian Servus TV.

"That's a shame, because we had fun risking life and limb and that's gone now, really," added Moss, 82.

Moss admits that the danger was a key factor in his enjoyment of racing.

"In my opinion, if you don't want to take risks, play tennis," he added.
