Was maybe not as mercurial as some, but certainly had a racing brain like no other in those days and knew perfectly how to win championships, a skill few racers have. And some of them in this country in particular are lauded far more than this legend. Raced against Clark, Hill, Rindt and many others and beat them all.
One of the memories that I will always have of Sir Jack was one of his mottoes - "win at the slowest possible speed", or something like that? A true thinking racer. Anyway, Australia has lost a legend today, RIP.
