Sir Jackie Stewart, the former Formula One world champion, has paid tribute to his “wonderful, extraordinary” friend Queen Elizabeth II.

Stewart developed a close relationship with Her Majesty, who died on Thursday at the age of 96.

Close associates

Stewart, 83, became close to the Queen after meeting Princess Anne, who was named BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 1971 after winning the European Eventing Championship as an individual.

“We shared a lot of events when she won sportswoman of the year and I won sportsman of the year.” “We got along very well for some reason,” he added of Princess Anne.

“She was a great driver, and Her Majesty was a fantastic driver.” Her driving discipline was superb.”

The Queen attended Stewart’s 80th birthday celebrations at Pall Mall’s Royal Automobile Club.

“She came to our house quite frequently and was a remarkable lady,” Stewart said. “A wonderful companion, and it’s just the most heartbreaking thing.”

“For all the people I’ve lost – 57 of my friends were killed driving racing cars – I’ve felt more pain in the last few days than I ever have before because there will never be another.” She was the absolute monarch.”
