    Great. Thanks. Interesting to see the contrast between one like Surtees actually wanting a Jim Clark to be his teammate vs. most of the current lot who want to be numero uno and have ‘issues’ if their teammate is too close to their ability.

    One of the best podcasts yet.

    Many of the questioners tried to elicit from John his personal opinions of others.

    It was notable that he has the class and dignity to avoid the temptation and leave conclusions to others, but still give us insights into his fascinating history.
